Team Members

Fredrick Doss - Treasurer

Freddy and Elad met in the midst of a cold war. Freddy was working in Missouri's legislature when he volunteered for a day at the summer leadership program Elad runs in the Hyde Park neighborhood, and he quickly created international alliances between countries run by the middle schoolers and the upper elementary school students. Elad was left with the kindergartners and a pack of pipe cleaners. The world was never the same.


Today, Freddy works as the Communications and Policy Specialist for Civic Ventures, focusing especially on economic policies to benefit working Americans. Previously, Freddy served as the Public Information Officer for the City of Kirkwood, and, before that, he served as a Legislative Assistant for 5 years in the Missouri House of Representatives. Freddy has worked on many campaigns, including 7 winning ones in Missouri and 1 in Washington, D.C.


Freddy received his Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Missouri State University and holds a Masters Degree in Public Relations from Webster University.
