Olympia. In a can.

What’s the hardest part about keeping up with the goings-on in Olympia during the legislative session? Well, for one thing, they’re in Olympia. And if you’re not there, it’s not easy to stay up on what ‘s going down (you see what we did there?). If you’re not in the loop, laws tend to get passed that you might not agree with.

And that, my friend, is crap.

So here’s what the Bus is doing about it. We’re bringing Olympia to YOU. Literally. In January and February, you, the big homie, can join the Bus for drinks, art, and legislators, aka our brand new Olympia series tactfully titled: Olympia. In a can.

Here’s what you get to do: show up at Grey Gallery and Lounge on Capitol Hill on a Wednesday evening. Grab a beer (or a soda – it’s an all-ages space, people!), check out the art, and then prepare to have your mind blown as legislators video-conference in direct from Olympia just to talk to you, the young people of Washington State.

Yes, you read that right – Olympia is grabbing a beer with YOU, through the wire, live and direct. Every evening will be focused around one of two huge themes from this year’s legislative session: the environment and higher education. Unless you’re driving down to Oly midweek, this is your single best way to talk face to face with the elected officials whose votes will decide these issues. To top it all off, we’ll be recording video testimony, so you can make sure every legislator hears your voice loud and clear.

Think of it as your own personal smoke-filled room… minus the smoke.

Here’s the dates and issue-foci:

  • January 27th – Higher education
  • February 10th – Environment
  • February 24th – Higher education

We’ll see you there!
