A nurse and activist with a broad life experience that includes being homeless, working full-time and going to college while raising a disabled child as a single mom without child-support. She has always lived in St. Louis.
Why should you vote for her?
Missouri’s 1st district needs someone who has been through unjust struggles and wants to ensure that others do not have to go through the same experiences.
According to Brand New Congress: “The people of Missouri’s 1st district need a representative who understands their struggles and will fight for real solutions. Cori Bush is a former teacher, a registered nurse and a pastor. She’s a single mother and an engaged citizen. More importantly, she’s a fighter. This is not the time for baby steps. Incremental change is no change at all when families are struggling to put food on the table or find justice in the streets. Cori is running to bring transformative change to St. Louis and all of Missouri’s 1st. Stand with Cori, because she stands by you.”
Cori’s most important priorities of the Brand New Congress Platform are:
- Replacing the school-to-prison pipeline with a school-to-prosperity pipeline.
- Medicare for all and affordable medication.
- Raising the federal minimum wage to $15.
- Workers rights & job training.
