Michigan Education Association

Rashida is a proven fighter who will protect our public schools, support our educators, and ensure all our kids have a chance to learn and thrive. Our public schools are under attack, and we need a fearless Congresswoman who will advocate for Michigan students and educators in Washington and at home. Rashida is a relentless worker for the people of Michigan, and we're excited to work just as hard to send her to Congress to ensure all our communities have great public schools.

- Paula Herbart, MEA President

I know I will have a strong partner for Wayne County with Rashida Tlaib in Congress. Rashida works hard every day and puts the residents of Wayne County first. That's why I'm proud to endorse Rashida Tlaib for Congress. 

Justice Democrats

Rashida already broke tremendous barriers in Michigan by becoming the first ever Muslim woman to serve in the state legislature. Time and time again, she has fought for our shared values. Now she’s ready to take on the bullies in Washington by representing Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.

Democracy for America

Rashida Tlaib is a courageous progressive leader and unrelenting champion for Detroit’s working families that our country needs in Congress.  When millionaires, billionaires, and corporate interests try to silence her, Rashida refuses to back down from her mission to make life better for working class people.  Democracy for America members are thrilled to endorse Rashida, not only because she’ll make history as the first Muslim woman in Congress, but because we can’t wait to see what her fearless tenacity brings to fights for critical inclusive populist priorities like Medicare for All, criminal justice reform, and a $15 minimum wage. 

 

- Jim Dean, Chair, DFA

Michael Moore

I'm proud to support Rashida Tlaib for Congress in her campaign to represent Detroit in the U.S. House (MI-13). The Democratic Party needs new leaders. They need fighters. They need Rashida in the U.S. House!

UFCW 876

UFCW 876 is very proud to endorse and support Rashida Tlaib for Congress. She is a fearless advocate, working tirelessly to build and protect Michigan’s communities; recognizing people are the very core of a healthy economy. Tlaib has made a career of standing up for others despite the monumental push back of big business, she persists. Now more than ever, we need a strong, knowledgeable and fearless voice for working America.

 

-Dan Pedersen, President UFCW 876
