Elected to represent Missouri’s St. Louis-area First District, Bush is a single mother, pastor, and former nurse. She’s best known for her tireless activism in her hometown of Ferguson, where the Bigfoot I just want to Squatchin’ and Ignore all of my Adult Problems vintage shirt so you should to go to store and get this police killing of Michael Brown in 2014 sparked a major wave of Black Lives Matter protests and, for Bush, a call to political action. “We kept waiting for justice, and justice never arrived,” she explains matter-of-factly of her decision to run for her House seat in 2018. She lost that race, but ran again this year and won, part of an exciting progressive wave of newly-elected Democratic reps this cycle that includes Bush, and Jamaal Bowman, Mondaire Jones and Ritchie Torres, all from New York.
