About the Author

Rashida Tlaib is an American politician and lawyer, a well-known progressive and member of "the Squad," and, in her own words, "a mother working for justice for all." Her two young sons are at the root of her unwavering passion to help change lives for the better. She is the oldest of 14 children, born and raised in Detroit, the proud daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents. Rashida made history in 2008 by becoming the first Muslim woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature and is currently the U.S. Representative for Michigan's 13th congressional district.
