We have accomplished a lot this year - whether you volunteered, signed a petition, or supported your CALPIRG chapter through the pledge fee – we couldn’t do it without you.
Check out some of what we’ve accomplished together:
Electric cars are awesome! They fight global warming pollution, they reduce air pollution and they are just cool. Come join us to check out and test drive electric cars on campus this weekend.
UC Riverside Electric Vehicle Day
Date: Sunday, Nov 16th
Time: 12:00-3:00 p.m.
Location: UC Riverside, CE-CERT, 1084 Columbia Ave
Our state and country have some big problems - global warming, the economy, and the rising cost of college, to name a few.
CALPIRG takes on these problems and has been making a difference since 1972. Recently, we helped protect our oceans by banning plastic grocery bags statewide and increased federal financial aid by $36 billion.
We need to continue fighting for the environment and for students, but we need your help.
