Not too long ago, we introduced you to Cori Bush, a registered nurse and Ferguson activist. We asked you to join us in asking her to run for Congress. You, from every corner of the nation, answered the call and told Cori you would back her.
Today, we are incredibly proud to announce Cori is running to represent MO-1 in Congress!
Cori embodies the kind of leadership St. Louis needs.
She knows the pain of working families because she has lived it. She understands the needs of society’s most downtrodden, because she serves them every day as a nurse. When Ferguson burned, she answered the call and stood tall on the front lines against police violence. She’s the perfect person to represent St. Louis because she is St. Louis.
But Cori isn’t just our first official candidate. She’s yours. At the start of our nomination drive, you recommended Cori in droves. Over and over again during our vetting process, we were impressed with the passion people have for Cori; and after getting to know her, we firmly agree that it’s a passion well-placed.
While Cori’s just the first of the many candidates we will be running in the 2018 midterm elections, she’s a strong representation of what’s to come:
She puts people first — As a nurse, she’s been a first-hand witness to community health struggles: “We have patients who don’t even realize they are getting better because they are so stressed about how they will be able to get the resources in the future.“
She believes in her community — Cori believes in fighting to create thousands of jobs in St. Louis, not fighting to save 1 job in DC. That’s why she’s committed to bringing renewable energy jobs to St. Louis, even if the refining and fossil fuel industry attacks her for it.
She’s not afraid to speak the truth — Cori believes the role of government is to support, not control. That’s why she wants to break the school-to-prison pipeline, create educational standards on-par with other nations, pass Medicare For All and make the federal income tax fairer for the middle-class.
She’s struggled and lived the real American experience — While taking care of two young children, working and going to nursing school, she lived out of her car. You won’t find a DC politician of any part who’s faced the stigma of homelessness. Because she knows first-hand how expensive being poor is, you can trust Cori to protect social support programs, remove barriers to housing and increase funding for job training.
Cori, like all of our candidates, will challenge the status quo of American politics. They’ll be attacked as unprepared by Establishment Democrats and soft by Republicans — but so what? We will be defined by ourselves, our actions and our commitment to the people.
I have recently started watching girl meets world and I’m just so confused on how anyone could hate Riley Mathews. She is literally a ray of sunshine who would do anything to protect the people she loves. She is so beautiful and deserves all the happiness in the world.
(( This is some Dead By Daylight Ocs, my buddy @iron-willed had shown me his oc Cory (worried child) and had to draw him and I ended up making this bad boy Maddox Fox, he keeps Cory safe and survive the trails they go up against the killers pretty much a babysitter. also did this to cheer my friend up <3 ))
after some thought, i will not accept a boy who doesnt have the personality and paitence of Augustus Waters, the compassion and looks of Freddie McClair, the commitment to a relationship like Cory Mathews and the protectiveness of Dexter Morgan.
I watched GM Ski Lodge pt. 1 and I got angry about how Maya’s character was being treated. And by that I mean is that she is regressing who she is. In GM True Maya we see that she was able to accept the person who she has become. She realized that she didn’t become Riley, but that Riley had influenced her on having hope and from stopping her from doing something bad that she will regret and get her into trouble. But now in GMSL, all of a sudden she’s thinking about breaking the rules (although she did save Farkle by breaking the rules). Her fantasy she thought about being with Lucas had to do with doing dangerous stuff and breaking the rules. Why is Maya all of sudden going back to the person she was in season one and the beginning of season two when the second half of season two she started to hope and do better. It like all the things she went through with dealing with her father, her family life, her identity crisis go down the drain and she is back to the way she acted in season one? All her hard work and her acceptance of hope is basically now not important? And I also got annoyed at Lucas when he said he didn’t like the fact that Maya and him tangled and stuff and that she never knows when to stop. Umm excuse you Lucas but who was the one who told you not to ride the bull because she was scared you were going to get hurt? Who was the one who didn’t need to be restrained when everyone else thought she would when her best friend threw ice cream at her? Who was the one who has grown so much even at a time when she didn’t believe in hope, when all her friends would remind her of how she didn’t have a great life? That’s right Maya ! So now I’m mad after watching the first part of GMSK. What do the writers honestly have planned for Maya’s character? She went through this big identity crisis (which honest to god she didn’t have to go through that nor did she think she was going through one until Riley started noticing that Maya WAS FINALLY DOING BETTER and not reacting as to “how she was supposed to”) and then she found her self again and accepted it and now it’s like nothing.
I love Maya, she is my favorite character in this show and the way they keep changing her character basically back and forth is so unnecessary because Maya Hart is amazing and perfect just the way she is. She’s growing up and finding herself along the way. Don’t keep suppressing her from growing and making her go back to the way she was in season one. She has matured and grown so much, stop making it seem that there’s something wrong with her when she is perfectly fine!

Chris had been thinking about this for a while now - the way Cory had protected him during the incident with the storm. It had been on his mind and he wanted to go and visit him now that he was feeling better. After hanging out in his room for a bit and getting dressed, the blonde gave himself a once-over in the mirror to make sure he looked okay. He wasn’t dressed up by any means, but he’d actually put somewhat of an effort into his makeup and hair. Once he felt satisfied, Chris left his room and headed down the hallway toward Cory’s, stopping outside of the room and taking a deep breath before knocking. “Coooory?” He cooed, hovering in the doorway.
