Rashida Tlaib for Congress, MI-13 primary Aug 7On Tuesday August 7th, Democratic primary voters in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District should vote for Rashida Tlaib.

Rashida Tlaib has true political courage:

  • As a state legislator, she took on the Koch brothers’ dumping of petcoke piles throughout the city of Detroit — and won.
  • She took on an expansion of Marathon Oil’s refinery — and won.
  • She even took on Matty Moroun, one of the richest men in Detroit, to get his high-polluting trucks off city streets — and won.

Rashida Tlaib for Congress, MI-13 primary Aug 7Rashida Tlaib has signed a pledge to not take money from the fossil fuel industry.

Rashida Tlaib is endorsed by the Detroit Free Press as the right fit for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District: 

“Her roots in social justice and activism are a good fit for the district. She pairs progressive politics with policy know-how; a commitment to social justice with a reputation for solid delivery of constituent services; she’s not afraid to unleash fiery rhetoric, but she can also deploy an easy charm that allows her to forge unlikely working relationships with her ideological opposites.”
