MAKE A DIFFERENCE
New Voters Project – Work to turn out the youth vote for the upcoming midterm elections. Do voter registration, voter education, coalition building, and get-out-the-vote work so that young people’s voices in Oregon are better represented in our democracy!
Beyond Plastic – Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment and threaten our health for hundreds of years. Join the growing campaign to go beyond plastic and move towards a sustainable society free from unnecessary single-use plastics.
Hunger and Homelessness – No one should worry about where they’re getting their next meal or whether they’ll have a roof over their heads. Work to fundraise for critical charities and volunteer in the community to help our peers and neighbors that are struggling to make ends meet.
Affordable Textbooks – Textbooks are too expensive! The solution is open textbooks which are free to download and cheap to print. At the very least students should be able to see the costs of the books they’re purchasing. Help us advocate for course material costs transparency for all campuses in Oregon by collecting support from faculty.
Communication Skills – Improve your public speaking and writing skills, and learn how to work with the media to get media coverage. Get experience speaking in front of groups and advocating a position one-on-one.
Campaign Skills – Learn the basics of running a campaign – recruiting and training volunteers, generating grassroots support (petitions, letters, calls), building coalitions, organizing large events, campaign strategy, and advocacy skills.
Leadership Skills – Learn how to run meetings, work with teams, plan large events, develop other leaders, mange volunteers, and manage your time.
