Cori Bush is running for congress!

Hoping to replicate the stunning success of fellow Justice Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez primary campaign, St. Louis native, Cori Bush is running to bring transformative change to Missouri’s 1st Congressional District.

Cori Bush is a former early childhood educator, a community-based mental health registered nurse, and an ordained pastor.

Cori has felt the burden of being uninsured and the pain of homelessness. She has endured racism and sexism. She is a survivor of sexual assault and domestic violence. Cori experienced the challenges of raising children on her own, living paycheck to paycheck, making just above minimum wage, taking on student loans to continue her education.

And Cori Bush stands tall, using her experiences as fuel to fight for the disadvanged, the disenfranchised, and the voiceless.

Cori is a tireless advocate for creating dramatic change. Now is not the time for baby steps. Incremental change is no change at all when her patients can’t afford medication, and families are struggling to put food on the table and find justice in the streets.
