The Omnibus for Direct Democracy
The initiative/direct democracy conference I'm attending in San Francisco is fascinating - one of my favorite things about going to conferences is meeting new people and learning about what they do to promote democracy, here in the U.S. and especially abroad. One project I learned about is Omnibus for Direct Democracy -- an organization of folks traveling around Germany via bus since 1987, spreading the word to folks about the initiative and referendum process. Check out this video and this one too to learn more about their story.
