Who We Are

The Bus Foundation amplifies the voice and leadership of diverse young people to achieve a more just and equitable Oregon.

We envision an Oregon where young people boldly lead the state forward, our democracy is inclusive and accessible, and our communities are strong and resilient.

WE ARE BUILDING A GENERATION

OF YOUNG PEOPLE

BY YOUNG PEOPLE

FOR ALL PEOPLE

How We Came to Be

We got started in 2002 by a bunch of young leaders in a bar. They didn’t like the way politics was going and they decided to turn things around. So they bought a Bus & started getting volunteers on it, to make real political change and empower a whole new generation in democracy. They took the Bus around the state, helped some great people win elections, got thousands of regular people involved and just kept going.

And now, here we are. Welcome to the Bus. You’ll never want to get off it.
