Taneeza Islam

Taneeza Islam is an American Muslim community activist, civil rights lawyer and entrepreneur changing how we discuss access to lawyers’ services as an integral component of holistic community health. She has devoted the last 15 years to serving vulnerable communities, whether through developing service learning opportunities in after-school programs in Harlem, building schoolhouses in West Africa and Central America, or representing victims of discrimination in the workplace and schools in Minnesota and South Dakota.

She was awarded a Bush Fellowship in 2013 where her grassroots passions evolved into a vision for an innovative method to deliver legal services to vulnerable communities in South Dakota, through the Collaborative Legal Services & Incubator Program.
