Recently we got together with some Bus Drivers, PolitiCorps alum, and generally awesome movers-n-shakers to celebrate the end of an another amazing PolitiCorps summer. And while we’re so sad that the time flew by, we feel pretty stoked about the delectable democracy that they brewed up, including:
- Registering 2,245 voters.
- Calling 25,285 voters and knocking on 15,425 doors to help the Gresham Barlow School Bond Campaign.
- Collecting 767 community surveys to help the Portland Urban League prioritize their constituents’ needs – and then contacting 400 organizations to get donations for the Urban League’s fundraising raffle.
- Gathering 11,699 signatures for Oregon United for Marriage to put marriage equality on the ballot in 2014.
In case you weren’t able to make it to our PolitiCorps 2013 Graduation, watch this video to hear what these twenty one amazing PolitiCorps Fellows had to say about what they did with their summer vacation. (Um, which wasn’t really vacation because they worked more than 240 hours. BUT. It was crazy fun.)
If you think you might want to join in the democracy fun as a 2014 PolitiCorps Fellow, make sure to watch for our 2014 call for applications. Or, you can help support great programs like PolitiCorps by becoming a Bus Driver today.
