This year has been transformational: We passed SB 861, a bill that makes democracy free, and turns every mailbox into a drop box, by providing paid postage for ballots We worked alongside partners in the Fair Shot, One Oregon, and Renew Oregon coalitions to fight for racial, gender, economic, environmental, and immigrant justice We’ve registered nearly 4,000 voters from 2018-now, including prioritizing outreach to AAPI communities as a member of APANO’s VOTE Network In the 2018 election cycle, we mobilized to fill ~1,000 volunteer shifts, knocked 4,400 doors, made 6,500 calls, and sent 7,000 texts We involved our base in refining our values and rebranded from the Bus Project to Next Up, repositioning the organization for decades to come .
Our successes of the last year are what we need to soar, but we know this work is never over. Next up, we’ll be mobilizing on issues our generation cares about most like making it even easier to vote, advancing racial and gender justice, protecting our climate, gun violence prevention, and fighting to hold electeds accountable to the demands of our communities.
Come build for 2020! It's so close! Please dress fancy!
