Higher Heights for America PAC is proud to endorse Cori Bush to represent Missouri’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The State of Missouri has never sent a Black woman to Congress.

A native of St. Louis, Cori is a former early childhood educator, a community-based mental health registered nurse, and an ordained pastor. Following Michael Brown’s murder by a police officer in 2014, and the outrage from St. Louis  spread across the nation, Cori became a civil rights activist fighting for justice on the frontlines of Ferguson.

Through her activism, Ms. Bush was honored as a recipient of the 2015 “Woman of Courage” Award from the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation, the 2016 Delux Magazine “Power 100” Award, named one of the ‘Top 50 Women of St. Louis” by Gazelle Magazine, and honored as an “Unsung Human Rights Shero” by the St. Louis Coalition for Human Rights in 2017. She also received the 2018 “Community Activist” award from the Missouri Association of Black Ministers.

If elected, Cori will be a champion for police reform. She will be a strong advocate for laws that decrease gun violence. She will  support prioritizing funding for survivors of assault. She will be an advocate for affordable housing, raising the minimum wage, quality education for all children and, as a nurse, she will fight for a comprehensive healthcare system.

The time is now to elect more Black women to be at decision-making tables to represent us.  Higher Heights for America PAC strongly encourages its members to support Cori’s campaign with their time, talent and resources.
