Wherever there's room for improvement in public policy, Aviva Rosman has a knack for finding it. As COO of BallotReady, the first ever voter guide to provide information on every candidate and referendum on a voter's ballot, she's aspiring to rid the country of uninformed voters. By election day this November, BallotReady plans to be available to voters in 25 states.
Education is perhaps Aviva's greatest passion. A Teach for America alumna, she continues to advocate for education and school funding reform through involvement and leadership in organizations such as Illinois for Educational Equity and the LaSalle IL Local School Council.
Aviva is also driven to create Jewish community. She is a member of the Schusterman Foundation Revolve community and hosts weekly Shabbat dinners. In March, she worked with OneTable to host a 120-person Shabbat event leading up to the Illinois primary.
