Alabama House Democratic Caucus Welcomes New Chief of Staff, Akiesha Anderson


Montgomery, AL– The Alabama House Democratic Caucus is proud to announce that Akiesha Anderson has been named as the new Chief of Staff for the Minority Caucus. Mrs. Anderson is an attorney that grew up in Montgomery, AL and received a bachelor’s degree in Sociology (with a minor in Business Management) from Alabama State University, a Master’s in Public Administration from Auburn University-Montgomery, and a law degree (along with a Certificate in Governmental Affairs) from The University of Alabama.

In her most recent role as Policy Director for Alabama Appleseed Center for Law and Justice, where she served as a criminal justice reform lobbyist, she focused on policy development, legislative advocacy, coalition building, and engaging with public officials. In this capacity she wrote or helped advocate for several key pieces of legislation that have since been enacted into law, including HB95 – Rep. Jeremy Gray’s 2022 “Grace Period Bill” which gives people leaving prison time to get on their feet before having to pay back certain court-imposed fines and fees.

According to House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, “We are truly excited to have Mrs. Anderson joining our team because of her extensive expertise, leadership, and character. She has continually demonstrated a passion for improving the lives of the underrepresented and underserved throughout our state. I am confident that she will be a tremendous asset to the Caucus and she has already hit the ground running.”
