Fayrouz Saad, Candidate for Congress from Michigan. If elected, she will be the first Muslim Congresswoman. 

"This is why I need to run. I want to inform the narrative. I want people to have a better understanding of those with different race, ethnicity, faith backgrounds. I need to continue to be out there and fight for the progressive values I believe in… Hopefully young women, regardless of their background, can look towards me and other women and say: 'Okay, I can be that.’ I want young girls to grow up in a world in which it doesn't even occur to them that they can't run for office one day.”
