Travel with the Cascadia Freedom Caravan to Detroit in June!

The Cascadia Freedom Caravan is being organized by a coalition of community members from  Portland and Olympia to bring local activists to the Allied Media Conference and the US Social Forum in Detroit, MI, between June 18-26, with the buses leaving June 13th and returning the 30th. The format of the caravan is being encourage by the USSF as a way for local activists to link up with each other and make it to the forum together.

Our goal is to foment discussion and interaction amongst local community leaders and organizations interested in the values of the Forum, and to facilitate interaction amongst ourselves before, during and after the trip, to maximize the value of the experience. We plan on having a series of meet and greets before we go, to stop at strategic points between here and Detroit to share our work in Portland with people along the way, and to collectively document the experience.

    I have a question. I have a 3yo daughter, can she come a long without an additional charge?

  2. How many are signed up to ride the bus? How long will it take to get from Portland to Detroit?

    I would like to go to Detroit. How long do you expect to be on the road? Are we completely on our own for accommodations or are there possible arrangements being make. What is the plan for the return trip? Any other information about the trip would be appreciated.

    Are the buses biodiesel or some sort of sustainable and eco friendly mode of transport? Does the cost of food include vegan organic foods? Due to allergies I require a scent free environment, is that going to be possible? Finally will we be drinking local water, or can I bring 20 or so gallons of good healthy Olympia artesian well water with me? Thanks so much for reading and answering my questions!

    Hey, there are going to be a fundraising brunches the next two Sundays, May 30 and June 6. Those would be good times to get your questions answered. Brunches will be at Media Island International, downtown Oly, from 10am to 2pm. – berd
