What Can I Do? Campaign Founder
Rachel Fleischer is a Los Angeles based filmmaker, screenwriter and actress. Fleischer earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Film at the USC School of Cinema.
Shortly after graduating, she bought a camera and began documenting the lives of the homeless in her native city. Her four-year emotional and extraordinary journey became the award winning film, her first feature, Without A Home. Today, Fleischer is actively writing and developing a slate of film and television projects for herself to direct.
Still very active in the homeless community, Fleischer’s grass roots campaign What Can I Do? will raise awareness and compassion about homelessness through art. Fleischer blogs for The Huffington Post where she writes and posts videos about homelessness.
