Congratulations to Robin Bronk are due, not only for being honored at Jesse Jackson's 72nd birthday, but for her good work year round, bringing the entertainment community face to face with the issues of education in America today.

The Creative Coalition is the premiere nonprofit, nonpartisan social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community. Founded in 1989 by prominent members of the creative community, The Creative Coalition is dedicated to educating, mobilizing, and activating its members on issues of public importance, primarily public education, the First Amendment, and arts advocacy. Actor Tim Daly serves as the organization’s President.  As CEO, Bronk is dedicated to educating and mobilizing members of The Creative Coalition on issues of public importance. As a seasoned Capitol Hill strategist, she has represented The Creative Coalition at numerous Congressional Hearings, and the White House.  Bronk is an author and a frequent public speaker.

She produced the feature film airing on Showtime, Poliwood, directed by Academy Award-winner Barry Levinson. She also produced the award-winning Watch What You Watch PSA campaign addressing girls and body image. Bronk pens a weekly “Five Minutes…” column for The Hill newspaper.  Bronk grew up in Clemson, South Carolina and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from The Pennsylvania State University.  She resides in New York with her three daughters.


The Rainbow PUSH Coalition and the Citizenship Education Fund held their Annual Awards Gala , Friday, November 22, 2013 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  The event celebrated Rev. Jackson’s 72nd birthday and his lifetime of service in the struggle for civil and human rights at home and abroad. Significantly, Rev. Jackson just returned from meaningful visits to Nigeria, South Africa, and Brazil, addressing the critical issues facing the African Diaspora, and drawing links to the plight of African- Americans at home.

This year also marks critical landmark struggles in the U.S., from the fight to protect the Voting Rights Act from the Supreme Court decision, to commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and the Church bombings in Birmingham, to critical movements to protect the Affordable Care Act from the current onslaught in Congress.
