The Bus sees good policy as a necessary step in moving our state forward. We work to move the dial on issues that are critical to young people, elevating their concerns in the civic conversation and putting boots on the ground to pass policies that move our state forward.
Our legislative advocacy work has the benefit of meeting two goals for us – advancing justice and democracy access at the state level through good policy, and providing a hands-on experience for youth to learn about the inner workings of government and how to advocate for their beliefs.
We put boots on the ground to educate the public about local initiatives, organize our community, and get out the vote for the biggest issues of our time. As a youth-driven organization, we take our lead from you. That means our priority issues are largely organized around the Bus Youth Agenda, a survey of the top issues facing our community.
