CALPIRG is a statewide, non-partisan, student-directed and funded organization that works on issues like environmental protection, affordable education, and fighting poverty. We train students in grassroots and political organizing skills so they can run campaigns that make a huge impact. This past year, we successfully worked to ban plastic bags in Davis to protect the ocean and reduce pollution. We also helped register over 40,000 students to vote statewide in the 2012 election.  

We offer volunteer and leadership opportunities to make a difference on all these issues. Volunteers can make a huge difference on our campaigns and learn skills in grassroots organizing, media outreach, lobbying and advocacy, and event planning. Get involved today!

Our Spring 2014 Campaigns:

  • Million Clean Cars
  • Make Textbooks Affordable
  • Our Democracy, Our Voice
  • Students Against Fracking
  • Fight Hunger and Homelessness
  • Avoid the Debt Trap
