Rashida is rooted in community. Rashida fights for all of us.
Due to redistricting, our districts have changed. Rep. Rashida Tlaib ran and was re-elected to serve Michigan’s newly-formed 12th Congressional District in Congress, which includes many communities in Wayne and southern Oakland Counties.
Rashida is known for her strong work ethic and direct services model to change the lives of her district’s residents immediately. The eldest of 14 children, Rashida has been taking care of people all her life. She grew up in Detroit in a UAW-proud family, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants—and now she is raising her sons in Detroit while fighting for families of all backgrounds.
Rashida’s Top Priorities
Hand-in-hand with grassroots movements, Rashida is building a government that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few. She’s working toward environmental justice, racial and immigration justice, economic and housing justice, healthcare for all and healthcare equity, reproductive justice, LGBTQ+ rights and gender justice, and human rights around the world. Rashida will keep working tirelessly to improve the quality of life for our communities through policy and action. Her commitment to staying rooted in the community is what sets Rashida apart as a public servant who puts people first.
