The rights and equality of children, women, and the LGBT community have always been extremely important to Charisma. When she isn’t working, Charisma focuses her energy on correcting the injustice and inequality within those communities, and working to lift up the voices of marginalized groups in America and around the world. Last year, Charisma founded Equal and Forever, an LGBT wedding blog that not only celebrates love, but also works to create a world in which marriage equality is simply the norm. Charisma also is a frequent volunteer at Give Kids the World, a photographer for the Heart Gallery, and a volunteer for the Art by Coalition Children program at the Coalition for the Homeless.
