Michigan- Emgage PAC celebrates Rep Rashida Tlaib’s victory during the Michigan primaries. The organization previously endorsed the Congresswoman, and has made over 70,000 calls and over 460,000 text messages in the service of her victory.
“Voters sent a clear message that they’re done waiting for transformative change, that they want an unapologetic fighter who will take on the status quo and win…Onward to November, defeating the impeached President, and showing up for each other along the way.” – Rep. Rashida Tlaib
“From introducing a successful amendment prohibiting ICE from collecting the DNA of immigrant detainees, to getting the House to pass legislation requiring replacement of water lead pipes, to introducing unprecedented legislation in the service of reforming our criminal justice system– Rep. Rashida Tlaib has consistently worked for the attainment of justice and equality for all peoples, and we are confident that she will continue to do so after her victory today. Emgage PAC is incredibly proud to have endorsed and supported such a trailblazer, who has served as one of the first Muslim women in Congress with resilience and grace.” – Nada Al Hanooti, Executive Director of Emgage PAC Michigan
