Rashida Tlaib

MI-13 (D)
Born and raised in Detroit, Rashida is the daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents. She made history in 2008 by winning her race for State Representative and becoming the first Muslim woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature. While Democrats are looking for leaders who will stand up to Donald Trump and our nations most pressing problems, Rashida has an unparalleled record fighting for her constituents and her values, taking on billionaires and multinational corporations, and winning.
How does Rashida align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Rashida will fight for a $15 minimum wage and equal pay for equal work. She will stand up for unions and support debt-free college and vocational training. She will work to increase funding for public schools and to ensure that charter schools are regulated and held accountable.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Rashida will work to guarantee equal rights for all so that everyone is welcome in America. She will fight relentlessly on behalf of the LGBTQ community, will work to overturn the Muslim ban and to provide a clear pathway to citizenship for all undocumented Americans. She believes we must be guided by empathy, not fear, and we cannot compromise in our fight to respect the human rights of people seeking shelter inside our borders.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Rashida will fight for Medicare-for-All that guarantees health care as a right, not a privilege. She will also fight to undo the terrible tax cuts the Trump administration has made to the EPA's budget and hold polluters accountable.
