Rashida Tlaib kicks off campaign for Congress, Detroit
Former Michigan legislator seeks to succeed Congressman John Conyers who represented Michigan’s 13th District since 2013. Conyers has served 52 years in office. He resigned from office in the wake of sexual harassment allegations in December 2017. The Democratic Primary election is August 7, 2018
Meeting every family, walking through all our neighborhoods on foot, and having real conversations is the heart of our historic campaign. We have won in the past because of our grassroots effort to make sure it’s about the voters.
We’re not about to change that now.
We have an ambitious plan to reach every single voter of this district – going door to door, neighborhood to neighborhood, showing voters firsthand our work ethic and hands on approach to public service. It is bold, but I know it can be done with incredible supporters like yourself.
So please join me on Saturday, March 24 to kick off our campaign with the people who will fuel it – our volunteers!
Come check out the campaign headquarters, get your official Rashida for Congress t-shirt, and be a part of our historic launch.

Knocking doors and talking to voters is what will win this election. Let’s kick it off together on Saturday, March 24.
Always serving you,
Americans for Peace Now presents “Vision of Peace Celebration” on May 3.
I have served on the board of directors of this important organization for many years, alongside my good friend Michael Walzer. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Michael to be recognized by APN. His writings have provided the road map to lead us to a just solution for Israelis and Palestinians, one that is humane, moral and secure for all.
And what a wonderful choice in selecting Lara Friedman to be honored alongside Michael. Lara is one of the most indefatigable, smart, and accomplished people with whom I have worked. While serving as APN’s Director of Policy and Government Relations, her research, reports and policy work were critical to APN’s visibility and success on Capitol Hill and informing and influencing foreign policy.
It will be a fantastic opportunity to share a memorable evening with friends, recognizing the important work and accomplishments of two uniquely thoughtful and dedicated people – Michael Walzer and Lara Friedman.
Go HERE – or see below – for an invitation to the event with a link to make your reservation to join us in New York. I hope I’ll see you there!!
