Congressional Fellow

Office of Congresswoman Grace Meng

Originally from Bangladesh but born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, Habib Rahman-Kader and his family immigrated to Paterson, New Jersey in 2006. As a first- generation immigrant, Habib is acquainted with the issues affecting immigrants and other marginalized populations in the United States. This led him to work within the government and nonprofit sectors in order to help shape policies to address health and economic issues to level the playing field for disadvantaged groups.

As a Policy Advocate for Georgia Watch, Habib conducted policy research related to the organization’s legislative initiatives and helped put together resources about the importance of Community Health Workers to health equity in Georgia. He also helped the organization make advocacy calls to state legislators and drafted materials related to its legislative policy efforts to protect Georgians from predatory lenders. Further, Habib interned as a legislative aide to a Councilwoman-At-Large of Paterson, and he served as a legislative aide intern to a New Jersey Assemblyman, where he did policy research on the opioid crisis, college affordability, and pension.

Habib is a first-generation college student who has earned a Bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017. He then obtained his MPH in Health Policy and Management from Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health in 2021.

Habib is fluent in English and Bengali and has working knowledge in Hindi, Urdu, Turkish, and Arabic. Outside of work, Habib enjoys going to the gym, reading, and exploring new places in the US or abroad.
