She is the member of Congress who introduced legislation to *immediately pay every person in the United States $2,000* followed by $1,000 a month until a year after recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
She is leading efforts, along with activist groups, to *end water shutoffs* and restore water during the coronavirus pandemic to those who cannot afford their water bills.
She is one of the leading voices seizing the current opportunity to *address structural racism*, and calling on states to track racial coronavirus data.
* Do you know who she is? Here are some more clues:*
She is the sponsor of legislation to protect *credit records* from negative reports on debt for medically necessary expenses.
She is the only Congress member who has demanded that every Congress member *submit to DNA collection* in order to understand the cruel treatment of immigrants?
She is virtually alone in Congress in talking about the need to shift military funds to *human and environmental needs*.
Her list of sponsored and cosponsored legislation – passed or pending – reads like a comprehensive progressive turn toward sanity and sustainability.
If you don't know by now, we are referring to *CONGRESSWOMAN RASHIDA TLAIB* of Michigan, and everyone in the United States benefits from her serving in Congress.

*Progressives are largely limited to online activism at the moment, and RootsAction has the experience to lead on it. *Online activism has never yet been used to its full potential, though our successes [ [link removed] ] are piling up.
Now is the time to ramp up pressure for progressive change, and to maintain basic functions that some would like to erode – including elections. RootsAction is helping people in numerous states lobby their legislators for *Voting By Mail*, and we've long been a defender of the U.S. Postal Service.
We can only continue with your help. And we need your help to defend brave members of Congress like Rashida Tlaib.
