As FCNL’s National Field Organizer, Shoshana Abrams is responsible for deepening and expanding our Advocacy Teams program, a network of hundreds of Quakers and friends lobbying to build congressional champions for peace and justice.

Before joining FCNL, Shoshana spent six years working for a variety of organizations doing peacebuilding work in the Middle East. She spent the last three years working for Kids4Peace International, a nonpartisan, interfaith organization that brings American, Palestinian and Israeli teenagers together for long-term interpersonal engagement. While there, she co-directed their Global Institute, a 10-day intensive that brought more than 50 teens from the US and the Holy Land to Washington DC for a week of learning, skill building, and lobbying. Shoshana brings extensive project management and operations experience.

Originally from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Shoshana holds a BA in Government and International Relations from George Mason University and an MA in Public Policy and Conflict Resolution from Tel Aviv University. Shoshana lives in Washington, DC with her husband.
