How do you define creativity? Channeling imagination and ability into an original work of art? Natalie Wallace is doing what creatives do so well – she’s helping us expand our thinking.

Blessed with “severe empathy,” Natalie operates at the intersection of creativity and justice – pushing the bounds of traditional thinking to impact a hidden epidemic in Omaha: sex trafficking. It’s a complex problem that demands original ideas and non-traditional methods. In other words, creative community, Natalie is out to inspire you to action, give voice to the hundreds impacted locally each month, and ultimately end sex trafficking in our community.

Over and over again, I said, ‘I can’t.’ ‘I can’t make change.’ ‘I’m not good enough.’ But then I changed the ‘can’t’ to ‘I can’t not do something.’ I have to do it. I have to do something. — Natalie Wallace
