Cast

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

She’s possibly the most widely recognized of the group due to her social media presence, incredible primary upset victory against five-term congressman (fmr.) Rep Joe Crowley, being the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and the extensive news coverage from major networks.

  • Amy Vilela

Daughter’s death drives Nevada candidate, Amy Vilela, for Congress.

“They’re telling her it’s going to be very expensive, she can leave now, there’s the door, it won’t cost her anything,” Vilela said. “They want us to see if we can get her on our insurance.”

  • Cori Bush

She represents Missouri’s 1st congressional district.

“I’m running because the people of Saint Louis still need resources,” said Bush. “We still need a livable wage. We still need affordable, quality, available health insurance, we still need racial equity, we still need reforms on our criminal justice system.”

  • Paula Jean Swearengin

Paula is a social and environmental activist from West Virginia.

  • ‘Compelling as the other stories may be, you kinda can’t help but spend them waiting for Ocasio-Cortez to come back onscreen,’ Sean Burns for The ARTery;
  • ‘It’s refreshing to see how polite the Democrat political discourse is, in contrast to the deliberate boorishness of Trump,’ Suzi Feay for Financial Times;
  • ‘If a film like Knock Down the House can inspire the next AOC to run for office, maybe the face of American politics can really change sooner than later,’ Kiko Martinez for San Antonio Current.
