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.
Happy Election Day!
Join the millions of students who are voting this year. By voting in big numbers we can raise the voices of young people, together.
Polls are open 7:00am - 8:00pm
Election Day is around the corner and there's nothing scarier than missing the chance to make your voice heard!
Our New Voters Project is working to make sure students have the information they need to cast their votes this Election. Help us by signing up to volunteer at one of our Get Out the Vote Reminder Phonebanks.
Tell us your student debt story and we'll deliver it to the US Department of Education in Anaheim, CA next week.
