Tulsi Gabbard

Congresswoman, Hawaii's 2nd District

Tulsi Gabbard grew up in beautiful Hawai’i, the fourth of five kids. As a teenager she co-founded an environmental non-profit called Healthy Hawai’i Coalition that focused on educating children about protecting Hawai’i’s environment. Tulsi was elected to the Hawai‘i State Legislature in 2002 when she was just 21 years old. In 2010, Tulsi was elected to the Honolulu City Council, serving as Chair of the Safety, Economic Development, and Government Affairs Committee and Vice Chair of the Budget Committee. Tulsi was elected in 2012 to the United States House of Representatives, serving Hawaii’s 2nd District.  She is one of the first two female combat veterans to ever serve in the U.S. Congress, and also its first and only Hindu member.  She is a champion for our veterans and service members, and an advocate for making smart strategic decisions that best secure our nation, while keeping us out of unnecessary interventionist wars.
