Mobilize Missouri announces our endorsement of Annie Rice for the Democratic candidate for 8th Ward Alderwoman in the City of St. Louis. With Mayor Lyda Krewson’s recent appointment of 8th Ward Alderman Steve Conway to the Assessor’s Office, the vacant aldermanic position has the opportunity to be filled with a progressive voice for one of St. Louis’ most economically and racially diverse wards.
Annie works as an immigration and civil rights attorney, uniquely positioning her for understanding and overcoming the challenges that the City of St. Louis has faced for decades. Annie has marched with other local leaders to call for fair and equitable policing, and continues to support efforts to engage and register voters and support candidates at the state and local levels who wish to see St. Louis put its residents first.
Mobilize Missouri is proud to stand with Annie as she seeks the nomination from the Democratic Central Committee, who will be voting on their appointment on Tuesday, December 19.
Mobilize Missouri proudly announces our endorsement of Cori Bush for Congress (MO-01). Our organization firmly believes the combination of Cori’s progressive platform and her grassroots activism and leadership ensures St. Louis area residents will have an outspoken advocate in the House of Representatives.
Mobilize Missouri commends Cori on her efforts as a leader in the movement for black lives. After both the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson and the 2017 acquittal of police officer Jason Stockley in the killing of Anthony Lamar Smith, Cori has taken her activism to the front lines. In tandem with other city leaders and clergy, Cori has drawn together a coalition of activists across racial lines to take control of the narrative surrounding the unjust treatment of people of color by the police departments in St. Louis City and County. She will continue this fight as a Congresswoman, pushing for an equitable justice system and ending the school-to-prison pipeline.
Further, our organization recognizes Cori’s advocacy for the most vulnerable residents of the St. Louis area. As a single mother who has experienced homelessness and poverty herself, Cori understands the burdens many St. Louisans face of living paycheck to paycheck, being uninsured, and lacking the resources to live a prosperous life. Cori has vowed to fight for Medicare for All, an increased the minimum wage, and free and accessible higher education so that everyone has a chance to grow and succeed.
Mobilize Missouri is proud to stand with Cori as she seeks the Democratic nomination for Missouri’s 1st Congressional District.
