Avivit is a researcher and writer and an expert on Arab society, minority-majority relations, and shared society in Israel.
Between 2008-2020 Avivit was the Israeli Representative for the Inter Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues, a coalition of about 100 Jewish-American organizations that work together to enhance awareness and education of Arab society within the Jewish-American community. In this capacity she was the “eyes and ears” of the coalition on the ground, researching and writing about a wide variety of issues – from civil society work, via discourse and legislation to government development plans, integration of Arab society into higher education and employment and so forth.
