Emgage PAC endorses Fayrouz Saad and Rashida Tlaib for Congress

[Canton, MI] Today, Emgage PAC announced that it has endorsed candidates Fayrouz Saad for Michigan’s 11th U.S. Congressional District, and Rashida Tlaib for Michigan’s 13th U.S. Congressional District. Both of these highly qualified candidates have a proven track record, impressive resumes, and a deep dedication to fighting for civil rights, minority rights, and a diverse America.

“We are pleased to endorse Fayrouz Saad and Rashida Tlaib in the primaries for their U.S. Congressional elections. They were selected following careful consideration of the many declared candidates in these races. Both are promising leaders who are attuned to the needs of the constituents in their respective districts and who will fight for the rights and opportunities of all Michiganders. We look forward to working to support their campaigns,” said Hassan Sheikh, Executive Director.

Fayrouz Saad has previously worked in the Obama Administration, and most recently served as the Director of Immigrant Affairs for the City of Detroit under Mayor Mike Duggan.

Rashida Tlaib is a former State Representative, and the first Muslim American woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature. Most recently she has been working as a public interest lawyer at the Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice, and successfully fought to pass laws that changed lives and communities for the better.
