Today is National Voter Registration Day!
"We'll be hanging out square and sending out teams to register folks both at the Square and around the city. There will be cool people, even cooler music, and lots of democracy-centric fun! We might also have MINI-PIES and other tasty treats. Shhhh - it's kind of a secret."

Because We Can Make a Real Difference!
Recent elections in Arizona, Nevada, and Florida, amongst many others, have shown the power of our vote. History has shown that when you threaten our families or harm our interests, we stand up. It is time to begin sitting at the table and stop being on the menu.
These are some important issues that motivate the immigrant community to Vote, and that we can pass if we vote:
- Driver’s License Restoration for all Oregonians despite legal status
- Tuition Equity for all of Oregon’s Students
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival
- Family Unity – stopping deportations
- The DREAM Act
- Comprehensive Immigration Reform
What you can do today:
• Check and upde your voter registration at www.oregonvotes.gov
• Invite your friends and family to register to vote
• Join the Bus Project and allies in Pioneer Square between 7:30am and 6:30pm TODAY
