Make Calls for Fresh Start, June 11th.

TL; DR: Volunteer with us and help us win the Fresh Start Oregon campaign. Details on our facebook page.

You’ve been waiting patiently for your chance to volunteer and help us win the Fresh Start Oregon campaign, and now, the time is finally here.

Back in April, the Bus Project launched the Fresh Start Oregon campaign, to ask Salem’s lawmakers to expunge all the nonviolent marijuana charges. This common sense policy acknowledges that the failed war on drugs has had devastating impacts to our communities, and that a single pot charge shouldn’t be enough to ruin the lives of young Oregonians.

1700+ signatures, some press coverage and plenty of lawmaking shenanigans later, Representative Ann Lininger has introduced an amendment to HB 3100 that will fulfill exactly what our campaign was hoping for: A Fresh Start for all Oregonians. Now, it’s time for us to make sure our legislators know how important this bill is to Oregonians across the state. By expunging these records, Oregon could set a standard to be followed by the dozens of states likely to legalize marijuana in the years ahead.

It’s time to make a ruckus, and that’s where you come in.

Swing by the Bus Project HQ (333 SE 2nd, Portland OR, 97214) on Thursday, June 11th at 5:30, as we phonebank our petition signatures and encourage them to contact their legislators to support this amendment. We’ve collected a *lot* of signatures, and we need a *lot* of folks to show up to make sure our elected officials in Salem hear from us.

RSVP on facebook so we can plan appropriately, and invite your friends. 

Don’t live in Portland but still wanna volunteer? Send us an email.

See you Thursday!

– Aaron, Amy, Nathan, and Team Bus!
