Building Power with Taneeza Islam
Nov 04, 2021 Season 1 Episode 74
John T. Meyer

It seems nothing can prevent Taneeza Islam from meeting her community’s needs in the moment. 

In the 16 months since we first heard from the South Dakota Voices for Peace executive director and immigration attorney, her organization raised $1.2 million in five months and distributed it to 1700 immigrant-led families in South Dakota. When they recognized a lack of multilingual COVID-19 education and vaccination resources, her organization filled the gap and presented their efforts to the Federal Department of Health and Human Services and Dr. Anthony Fauci. 

And that’s only some of the work that helped her realize she’s suited to meet her community’s needs from a different position. 

In episode 74, Taneeza rejoins host John T. Meyer to discuss her recently announced candidacy for mayor of Sioux Falls, what’s behind it, and the possibilities it holds for the community she serves. 

  • Building Power with Information (1:20)
  • Meeting the Need of the Moment (6:49)
  • Leading Differently (12:52)
  • Scaling Leadership Style (21:51)
  • Taneeza’s Hope for Sioux Falls (28:32)
