Amit Smotrich completed her undergraduate degree in International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. She has since been working in international advocacy on a variety of political and development issues. Amit started her career supporting community engagement programs to promote a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for J Street. She then served as Campaign Coordinator for American Jewish World Service where she helped launch their advocacy campaign focused on ending gender-based violence, violence against LGBT people, and ending early and forced child marriage. Amit led campaign strategy in ten states and helped to launch a yearlong fellowship that trained key opinion leaders on international development issues and the role of advocacy. Most recently, Amit worked at InterAction, a coalition of US-based humanitarian and development non-profits, and led efforts to fund and improve US food security and global health programs. She helped pass the Global Food Security Act in 2016 and worked with inter-agency officials on the US Global Water Strategy. Amit looks forward to strengthening her understanding of food security and water security management in developing communities while at Georgetown and beyond.
