“We are very excited to announce that Kaiti Dinges has been promoted from Assistant Director to Executive Director of Jana’s Campaign” says Curt Brungardt, Jana’s Campaign co-founder. “She has been an outstanding violence prevention educator and she will be a great administrator as well.”
Dinges holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Fort Hays State University. She has served as a staff member of Jana’s Campaign since 2016, starting as an Education & Prevention Specialist. “I am so very humbled and excited to lead this organization,” Dinges said. “We play a significant role in reducing gender and relationship violence through prevention education, which is provided to elementary, middle, and high schools, colleges and universities, and in communities. This social disease can be eradicated, and I am eager to continue the mission of Jana’s Campaign to do so.”
Jana’s Campaign is a national education and gender violence prevention organization located in Hays, Kansas. Jana’s Campaign was created in honor of Jana Mackey who lost her life to violence perpetrated by an ex-boyfriend in 2008. Mackey, a Hays High School graduate, was a law student at the University of Kansas and had spent years herself volunteering and helping victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in Lawrence, Kansas.
