Elizabeth Heyman

Elizabeth Heyman grew up in Los Angeles, CA where she developed a love of learning and passion to empower others through community service projects and other local opportunities to help the world around her. Elizabeth moved to New York City for college and immediately got involved in student government, eventually serving as Student Body President at Columbia University. After college, Elizabeth put her Political Science and Jewish Ethics degrees to work as an organizer and campaign field manager as an Avodah Corps Member in Washington, DC where she served at Jews United for Justice and advocated daily for social, racial, and economic justice in the region. For the past 2.5 years, she has been organizing for both electoral and issue campaigns (specifically paid leave, fair elections, and affordable housing) in the Washington-Metro area. She has since been working to support efforts to elect Democrats to office in 2020.
