Risa Leigh Clarke is a writer, producer, director and revolutionary with a firm belief in everyone's right to be free and live happily and in peace within their (healthy) communities without fear of reprisals or discrimination.
Inspired by her daughter, she left corporate America to focus on developing projects that uplift the human spirit and bring people together through the arts.
"Life is meant to be happy and lived with childlike wonder.
We must find our way back to this center."

Risa Leigh is a descendant of Dr. John Clarke, 1609 - 1676. Soul Freedoms, the Life of John Clarke, America's Forgotten Patriot is a Historical Drama of his extraordinary life and personal sacrifices to secure the Royal Charter of 1663 affording Religious and Civil Freedoms for the Colony of Rhode Island which changed world history. This is a long due project driven from a sense of duty; a story she must share.
Inspired by her daughter's art and ability to overcome discrimination by staying true to who she is, Risa Leigh founded the *Oneness through Art Movement in 2006. The Movement is now known as the MyKids Inclusion Revolution.
*"I had to make a decision, was I going to spend my life being angry at the persons who have wronged my daughter? Or am I going to forgive, rise above and channel that intense energy into my creativity and send something positive out into the world? I decided it was easier and more productive to follow Florentina's happy go-lucky lead."
"I have been very fortunate over the years to partner with incredibly talented, heart-centered people. I don't believe in coincidence, but I do believe that the right people show up at the right time. I am always open to collaborating on current and new projects, all you have to do is reach out."
It is with unwavering passion, conviction of truth, heart centered confidence and old fashion stubbornness I will use my voice even when I am shaking or collapsed in anguish and tears. I will not yield to silence, I matter. And so do you. ~ Risa Leigh Clarke
