(SALEM) - Next week, 50 Oregonians will embark on a 5 day regional Bus Tour through Oregon’s Congressional District 2. Sponsored by Rural Organizing Project, Causa Oregon, PCUN Farmworkers Union, and the United Farmworkers Union, the goal of the historic event is to unite rural communities in the vision of immigration reform, restoration of driver’s licenses and fair treatment for all immigrants.

The March for ONE Oregon Bus Tour will start in Bend on March 5th and travel through Central and Eastern Oregon.

“This historic bus tour is to promote the sanctity of Oregon families, show that we are one community, and one Oregon,” said Amanda Aguilar-Shank, Senior Organizer at Rural Organizing Project. “Bringing families together from around rural Oregon and our allies around from the region, we seek to win dignity for all of our community members.” During the 5 day tour, riders will also connect with allies from Idaho and Washington State in stops in those states. A range of activities are planned for each stop along the route including rallies, press conferences, vigils, sharing stories, and meeting new allies
