Get on the bus! March for ONE Oregon

March for ONE Oregon

We have a couple seats that just became available on the March for ONE Oregon!  Can you or someone from your community join us next week (Monday-Saturday) for this history-making action?  

This isn’t a just tour of the Northwest — it’s civil disobediance.  We are just one of several buses crossing the country, visiting 19 states and over 90 cities confronting policy that is breaking up families and demanding immigration reform that defends human dignity.  Bus riders will have the unique opportunity to learn from and work alongside some of the most powerful movement leaders and rural organizers in the state from powerhouse organizations like PCUN, Causa, and, of course, ROP.

This is an incredible opportunity for the right person who can make it work.  These remaining seats will receive a full scholarship (though donations are gladly accepted) — all expenses are covered (food, lodging, etc.) other than transportation to and from Bend for the kickoff Monday evening and closeout Saturday night.

Please send this announcement onto your lists — and time is of the essence!  This is a perfect opportunity for students or unfortunately unemployed local organizers who have enough flexibility in their schedules to make this work.

Fill out the application below and email it to keyla@rop.org as soon as possible!

Warmly,
Jessica
