We are UC Berkeley students' public interest group. Because 20% of the student body supports our work we get real results. Last year after a long fight we banned plastic bags in Alameda county, registered 8,000 students at UC Berkeley alone, and we increased financial aid (Pell grant funding) by 36 billion since 2007. Students pulling their resources together is working to fight large special interests. We need at least 20% of the student body to fight for the pblic and we have been on UC Berkeley's campus since 1976!

De-Pledging - If you have been one of the 20% of the student body that supports CALPIRG and you no longer wish to support the movement please email your name and student ID and that you want to De-Pladge. Thank you for your support!
