Black Lives Matter activist Cori Bush scored a number of firsts when she won her race for Congress in Missouri on November 3.
The 44-year-old St. Louis native became the first Black congresswoman from the state of Missouri as Blavity previously reported. But like many new members of Congress lately, Bush has some tough decisions to make, including what to wear to Capitol Hill.
Thankfully a few congresswomen gave her some expert advice on how to look congressional on a budget.
The reality of being a regular person going to Congress is that it’s really expensive to get the business clothes I need for the Hill. So I’m going thrift shopping tomorrow.— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) November 11, 2020
