It’s shaping up to be a great event, folks.
We’ll be hearing from State Senators and community leaders from across the state who just helped us pass the biggest piece of voter enfranchisement legislation in the past twenty years. We’ll also hear from legislators who are ready to champion the elimination of the final barriers to participation in our elections.
We’ll be doing it all in short, six-minute “Pecha Kucha” presentations, which will ensure nobody drones on and talks any longer than necessary. And we’ll be hearing from the Bus Project about the runaway success of the Fresh Start Oregon campaign, and how we’re working to make sure each eligible voter casts a ballot this next fall.
AND if you bring a completed ballot, we’ll even be nice enough to drop it off at the Elections Office, since the upcoming May Primary Election is a week from today.
This is going down at Northeast Portland’s newest coffee shop, Cup and Bar, opening at 5:30, and our programming will start promptly at 6:30, this THURSDAY, MAY 14th.
Cup and Bar is located in Portland at 118 NE Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, and is accessible by Portland Eastside Streetcar and TriMet Bus lines 6, 12, 19, and 20.
What are you waiting for? Go RSVP on our facebook page before it’s too late.
And, as always, all monthly members of the Bus Project get a free drink, on us.
We’re excited to see you…
See y’all there.
-Aaron, Amy, Nathan, and the whole Bus Family (and Mr. Swanson)
