Grassroots Policy Associate and DC Young Leaders Coordinator
Liza’s involvement with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) began as a HIAS Young Leader, organizing a community event relating to the plight of Iraqi refugees. Her volunteer service led to a staff position as DC Office Administrator, and has evolved to include a broad range of responsibilities, including coordination of Jewish grassroots advocacy around the country, and mobilizing a network of young professionals and students in the DC area who work to promote HIAS’ long standing mission of rescue, reunion and resettlement of Jewish and non-Jewish migrants. Prior to joining HIAS, Liza worked with the Energy Law team at the law firm of Leonard, Street, and Deinard; the development team at Women for Women International; and as an English teacher with the Chilean Ministry of Education’s Inglés Abre Puertas program. She holds a BA from American University in International Relations and Philosophy with a minor in Spanish, and has traveled extensively through South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
