Kelly Hayes-Raitt has been a fearless advocate for social justice for three decades. She was a national moderator for First Lady Hillary Clinton’s “Women and Social Security” teleconference. She travelled to Iraq just five weeks before the US-led invasion. The Iraqis touched her so deeply that she returned a few months later and provided on-air commentaries from Baghdad, Basra and Fallouja to KFWB news radio, KNBC local evening news and National Public Radio on how the war affected individual Iraqis. She’ll return to Baghdad this August. Seven chapters of her forthcoming book, Living Large in Limbo, an extraordinary collection of literary journalism covering these stories have been awarded 16 literary awards, and several chapters have been anthologized. To honor her humanitarian leadership, the Los Angeles County Commission on the Status of Women named Kelly a 2004 Woman of the Year.
