Anesa KajtazovicWe are excited to announce Anesa Kajtazovic has joined our team as the Director of Development and Marketing. Anesa joins EJA with a myriad of leadership experience in nonprofits, governmental affairs, management, and public relations.   

At age 10, Anesa immigrated with her parents to the United States from war-torn Bosnia. She was the first person in her family to graduate from college. At the age of 24, she became the youngest woman ever elected to the Iowa Legislature and the first Bosnian-American elected to any public office in the United States. (2011-2015). 

“Having come to this country as a refugee, I’ve seen first-hand the challenges that our immigrants and those living in poverty face.  It is sad that one's social class status dictates legal outcomes, with research showing 80% of legal needs not being met for our poor fellow Americans. It's fulfilling knowing my work will directly benefit homeless, veterans, domestic violence survivors, disabled, and immigrants.”  

“As a strong believer in the Constitution's promise of "liberty and justice for all", I look forward to expanding EJA’s reach.  We all can be advocates and do our part to help those without a voice.  I look forward to working with EJA’s supporters, donors, and fellows across the country, and using my voice to help those without one.”
