Member of the Delaware House of Representatives
Hijri 1414 (AH); Common Era 1993 (CE)
Madinah Wilson-Anton became Delaware's first Black Muslim woman legislator in 2020. She contended for state representative in the 26th Representative District, challenging the oppressed and submissive Muslim woman stereotype by becoming part of the US's political arena. In Wilson's own words, "a 27-year-old Black woman who covers and ran for office and won, speaks her mind." Before running for the Democratic party, Madinah was involved in several campus organizations, such as the Muslim Student Association, Students for Justice in Palestine, and her sorority Lambda Pi Chi. Wilson-Anton's career experience includes working as a policy analyst at the Biden Institute and as a staff manager for the Disaster Research Center at the University of Delaware. She also served as a legislative aid and fellow at the Delaware House of Representatives and as a legislative fellow at the Delaware Senate. Madinah earned a bachelor's degree in International Relations and Asian Studies from the University of Delaware in 2016, and she pursues a master's degree in Urban Affairs and Public Policy.
