Her most recent music video was for Lots of Love, whose forthcoming album is being released on Robert Schwartzman of Rooney’s label California Dreamin’.
In keeping true to her activist roots, Fleischer recently launched a digital campaign called “What Can I Do?,” to raise awareness and compassion about homelessness through art and social action. Fleischer’s Huffington Post Blog features articles and videos which discuss homelessness and offer information and tools to help others become more informed and compassionate about the issue. She is actively involved in the Jewish Federation where she sits on the social action committee.
In 2011 Fleischer had a solo photography exhibit and was featured in a show benefiting the esteemed international organization Human Rights Watch. Most recently her photography was featured in United Way’s first annual art show entitled “Faces of Homelessness” at the Downtown Art Walk.
