We support policy that advances a more just and fair Washington State. We focus on improving access to the democratic process, and ensure young people’s issues are prioritized by policy makers.

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.

Legislative advocacy

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.

Issue organizing

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.
