Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib is a well-known progressive warrior and, in her own words, “a mother working for justice for all.” She is the oldest of 14 children, born and raised in Detroit, the proud daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents.
The Congresswoman made history in 2008 by becoming the first Muslim woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature.
Prior to her service in the Michigan legislature, Rep. Tlaib was an attorney for the Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice.
Representing Michigan’s 13th Congressional District, which includes the city of Detroit, the Congresswoman serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
