Meet Rashida

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. She made history as the first Muslim woman elected to the Michigan Legislature, and one of the first Muslim women to serve in U.S. Congress. A bold, transformative leader and public servant, Rashida is fighting for families of all backgrounds, especially people who’ve been left out and marginalized.
