Audacious Changemaker: Community Service in the Bag
As founder of Purses for a Purpose, Shayna Rutman, SPA/BA ’24, MPA ’25, knows that a handbag holds more than spare change; it represents identity and autonomy. Rutman’s nonprofit—which has distributed 1,500 gently used purses to unhoused women and nonbinary individuals across the US since 2019—will host a packing party from 6–10 p.m. Wednesday, November 8, in MGC 332.
