Program Assistant, Middle East Policy
Liz Bajjalieh served as the Program Assistant for FCNL’s Middle East Policy program in 2018-2019. As a Young Fellow, Liz’s responsibility was to help bridge the gap between constituents and their members of Congress through assisting with Middle East lobby visits, drafting action alerts, and addressing constituent concerns.
Liz graduated cum laude from Loyola University Chicago with a B.A. in Anthropology and Sociology. In college, Liz was highly involved with LGBT rights activism, acting as former President of her campus’s LGBT organization. She worked at a local women’s homeless shelter as well as her campus’s diversity office, and in 2016 was an immigration casework intern with Senator Durbin. After college, Liz volunteered for underserved youth through City Year, and worked as the assistant curator at the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora.
Liz comes to FCNL with a strong interest in Middle East policy and history and enjoys learning about peaceful solutions to conflicts in the region. Outside of work, Liz loves to spend her free time sitting on her back porch with a good book.
