Draft our first Justice Democrat Cori Bush of Missouri
We’d like to introduce you to you to Cori Bush, a St. Louis native, registered nurse, a single mother, pastor, and activist. We want to add one more title to that list: Congresswoman.
Let’s draft Cori to run for Missouri’s 1st Congressional District.
Cori and other activists held the frontline of the Ferguson protests for over 400 days. Long after the St. Louis suburb faded from the news cycle, Cori’s and her team continued their calls for police reform. She continues that fight today as co-director of the Truth Telling Project, working to increase awareness of police misconduct while empowering citizens to take action to combat it.
As a registered nurse, Cori could tell Jason Chaffetz a thing or two about the cost of health care (hint: hospitals don’t accept iPhones as currency). She knows we can’t allow Republicans to drag us back to where we started, and she knows the ACA cannot continue in its current form. She believes Medicare-for-all is the only solution. And she’s prepared to fight for health care as a human right as fiercely as she’s fought for justice in Ferguson.
Cori also knows lifting people out of poverty is the key to reducing crime. She wants to replace the school-to-prison pipeline with a school-to-prosperity pipeline. She knows rubber bullets and tear gas won’t transform a community for the better — but affordable education and good jobs with living wages can.
Sign our petition and tell Cori we need her leadership in DC. Help us draft her for Missouri’s 1st.
Cori is exactly the kind of leader who will reform the Democratic Party. All her life she has advocated for the downtrodden and the disadvantaged. She stood her ground in Ferguson, now we need her to take the fight to Washington.
Yours for the revolution,
