NEXT's Get on the Bus (GOTB)
A group of DC-area young
professionals, many of whom have worked their entire careers in politics,
started NEXT to address their "collective frustration with the political
climate and the lack of meaningful, concrete ways for people to change
it." A major project for NEXT was its Get on the Bus (GOTB) project
which focused on two counties in West Virginia:
focused on two counties in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia – Berkeley
and Jefferson counties – where NEXT volunteers canvassed door to door with
local activists to register, educate, and mobilize voters in an attempt
to turn the state Blue. After contacting 36,000 voters face-to-face,
NEXT increased Democratic turnout by 38% and 39% in our two counties, and
in the process trained hundreds of local volunteers in grassroots activism
and left a venerable structure in place for future activity." [more]
