Students Push Our Country Forward
Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and have a strategic plan to get things done. The Student PIRGs have been working for more than 40 years to amplify the power of student activism, and help students make real change, right now.
Help Students Make A Difference Right Now
Right now, PIRG students are working to convince at least 50 colleges to meet their energy needs with 100 percent renewable sources, saving the bees that pollinate our foods by banning the sale of bee-killing pesticides, and protecting our health by moving us closer to zero waste and working to ban single-use foam take-out containers, plastic grocery bags and other plastic junk we can all live without.
As the nation has struggled with the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve launched a pledge-to-stay-home campaign, called for increased testing and advocated for other policies that will keep people healthy and safe during the pandemic. And we’ve made sure that our crucial organizing work can happen digitally, so that we can continue engaging our future leaders in making real change.
