Tahirah Amatul-Wadud

Massachusetts District 01






Having grown up in inner cities, Tahirah Amatul-Wadud seeks to be a “voice for the voiceless and marginalized.”

Tahirah is running on a platform of promoting universal healthcare and boosting infrastructure, including “high-speed internet access for all,” which she says her district’s rural areas lack.

As a volunteer commissioner for the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, Tahirah advocates before the state legislature to enact laws responsive to the needs of women and girls. She is a member of the Family Advisory Council of Boston Children's Hospital where she volunteers as a way of showing her deep gratitude to the hospital for its care of her 6-year old daughter who received life saving heart surgery as a newborn. Tahirah understands the need to prioritize healthcare for every person and is thus an avid supporter of Medicare for All.

Tahirah is committed to fostering a peaceful, safe and secure world for all; economic security for poor and working class families; providing quality and affordable public education for all and combatting climate change and build a clean energy economy

Tahirah will bring a life experience that is currently not represented in the halls of Congress if elected to represent Massachusetts' 1st Congressional District.  As a proven civil rights activist and lawyer, we believe she will walk in the unbought and unbossed footsteps of the late Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm and be a hard-working progressive, who will strongly champion equality and opportunity for all.
