Missouri’s standout legislator is Cori Bush, representing St. Louis and doing her best to push the envelope on how much activism Congress can handle.

Missouri has an interesting issue not often thought of as climate, but highly relevant: local family-owned farms. The Republican-led state legislature has stripped away the right of local control over animal waste coming off farms, effectively favoring large-scale corporate farms and the methane they produce. Candidates talking up local control and family farms might not think of themselves as climate activists but they are fighting for everyone’s right to a habitable planet (not to mention better food).
