Bus volunteers use people power to do great stuff for democracy. This stuff, in particular:

Bus Trips

Mobs of volunteers from all over Oregon literally get on the Bus to help forward-thinking candidates and causes. We travel our beautiful state together, go door to door, have real conversations with voters and really make change. And there ain’t much better place for meeting good people than on the Bus.

Makin’ Laws

Bus peeps use democracy for good. We advocate, testify & help make good ideas into good laws. We connect regular folks with the levers of power and innovate wherever possible.
