Mission Statement

The Bus Project is an innovative vehicle for hands-on democracy. We drive votes, we drive leaders, we drive change and yes, we have a bus.

Engage, educate, and elect. That's our mission.

Description

Founded in 2001 to respond to specific needs, the Bus Project has mobilized thousands of volunteers and activists around the state of Oregon. We bring voters out of the woodwork. We create forums to learn about candidates and policy issues. The BusPAC works to elect the best progressive candidates in the state. We do it all, with one constant: combining fun and politics. Former Governor Barbara Roberts, who now serves on the Project's Advisory Council, has called the Bus Project "the most exciting thing in Oregon politics in the last 20 years."

Most Oregonians -- most people -- want pretty much the same things. Access to a world-class education. An economy that rewards hard workers and innovators and provides jobs, and also has opportunities for the less lucky. An environment that makes people want to live here, and lasts for future generations. Equality, freedom, and safety. Access to decent and affordable health care. And a fair election system that promotes these aims and responds to the people's wishes. We shorten this by talking about our "Six E's"...
