Meet Representative Rashida Tlaib
As a Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib has fought relentlessly for vulnerable communities around the country, fighting against corporate greed; advocating for clean air and water, social justice, ending poverty, strengthening public education; and more. A Detroit native of Palestinian heritage, she built a career as a public interest attorney, challenging corporate abuses and protecting our civil rights. She made history in 2008 by becoming the first Muslim woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature, and then again in 2019, becoming one of the two first Muslim women in Congress. In 2022, she founded the Get the Lead Out Caucus to fight to ensure that every lead pipe in America is replaced, so that everyone has safe, clean drinking water.
