Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Burien, Olympia...
full-spectrum, hands-on, democracy. All Together Now
Fun fact: Last year, 61% of all registered young people in WA cast a ballot. However, the young folks who registered with the Bus voted at over 81%. The biggest reason for the huge increase? Hundreds of Bus volunteers reminded them to vote. Simple, easy, hella effective.
Be part of the magic and help make sure our generation is not just at the proverbial table, but taking an organic, free-range bite out of the election.
Also hella goofy.
We've got reminder parties going down throughout October. Democraseize the day (it makes more sense out loud) right here.
State of the State
The Bus will be journeying around the state to support an amazing line-up of forward-thinking candidates in some of our favorite Washington locales. Sign up for your dream location/candidates below!
Gig Harbor - Nathan Schlicher (State Senate)
Tacoma - Olgy Diaz (Tacoma City Council)
Burien - Lauren Berkowitz and Joey Martinez (Burien City Council)Spokane - Jon Snyder and Candace Mumm (Spokane City Council)Olympia - Mary Hall (Thurston County Auditor)
You may know the suave gentleman above from his work as a Rolling Stone writer and editor. Or perhaps as the guy who once colorfully described Goldman Sachs as "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity."
Either way, Matt Taibbi's coming to Seattle.
A prolific writer on topics ranging from money in politics, to income inequality, to student loan debt, he'll be bringing the goods for a rad evening.
Town Hall Seattle
Weds, October 2nd
High five to the hosts, Sightline Institute, defenders of real life vampire squids.
The Washington Bus: of young people, by young people, for all people
