Avi Viswanathan

Treasurer

Avi's passion for social justice comes in the form of community engagement. In his youth, he often felt left out of decisions being made in the community. As he grew, he saw more and more examples of this happening. He slowly developed a passion for wanting to see all people (particularly oppressed communities), having authorship and ownership over what happens to them and their communities.

Avi's experience in social justice is varied. He has worked for issue advocacy campaigns, worked in philanthropy, and now runs a program designed to spread the value of community engagement. Avi also has been a neighborhood activist and leader.
