Frederica Wilson represents Florida’s 24th Congressional District, one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse districts in the nation that includes parts of northwest Miami-Dade and southern Broward counties. Her tenure in Congress, now in its fourth term, also has been marked by her signature spirit of unrelenting advocacy on behalf of the less fortunate. As a former educator, elementary school principal, community leader, school board member, state legislator, and founder of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project, Congresswoman Wilson earned a reputation as a “Voice for the Voiceless.” Wilson earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Fisk University in 1963 and her master’s in elementary education from the University of Miami in 1972.
