Is there a ballot access campaign in  your state? No
Description of event (purpose, theme):
We are primarily focused on promoting Jill to students across Oregon and Washington with the theme of cancelling student debt and providing jobs.
 
Another objective is to promote Oregon's critical Ranked Choice Voting initiative which is on the November ballot in Benton County. This is of vital strategic interest to the Pacific Greens, with a win here we will have an excellent opportunity to put RCV on the ballot in other Oregon counties next election cycle.
 
Depending on the time available we also plan to hold fundraisers for Jill in smaller venues. Once we have a better handle on dates and times, press conferences can also be scheduled.

 

What is the speaking format for the candidate (time available, questions from panel, Q&A):
Varies depending on venue.

 

Who else is speaking?
In Oregon, our local Green Party candidates.

 

Expected number of attendees:
Varies depending on venue (see above)
Other expected groups and organizations in attendance:
None currently identified other than student groups. Once the dates are agreed we will outreach to other organizations to attend.

 

Media expected (press, tv, cable):
We expect major print, online, and tv media presence at the campus events and press conferences, and will be promoting those events via news releases in advance.

Event promotion mechanisms to be used:
We are gearing up now to heavily promote Jill's tour by organizing on campus.  It is vital that we get the tour dates agreed with Jill's campaign ASAP in order for this move forward.  We plan to mount a strong facebook campaign, and will be printing and handing out event flyers in advance at each venue.  Usual event notices in local print media.  More promotion could be done, such as radio ads, with some funding from Jill's campaign.  Please note that in Oregon we have active chapters in Eugene, Corvallis, and Portland with volunteers ready to promote the event.
Will proposer cover travel and stay expenses:
We will cover travel expenses within state and arrange housing for Jill. Other than that, no.

 

Can candidate appeal for funds?
Generally no, except at fundraisers.

 

Can we distribute literature?
Yes.
