California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG) – UCI Chapter

CALPIRG (California Public Interest Research Group) is a non-profit, non-partisan student organization that works on issues including hunger and homelessness, health care, higher education and more. For years, CALPIRG has been giving students the skills and opportunities to make a real difference in their communities.

We are the UC Irvine’s premier student public interest activism group. We work to protect the environment, provide hunger relief, and promote civic engagement.

Our CALPIRG chapter works with professional staff on campus to educate the public, run grassroots campaigns, and lobby our elected officials in Sacramento and in Washington DC so we can get real results.

The thing that makes us effective is that we are funded by the student body through a the CALPIRG voluntary pledge fee. Thanks so much to those of you who pay the fee and if you haven’t yet make sure to pledge CALPIRG.

We offer opportunities for you to become an intern or volunteer, where you can learn a variety of skills while really making a difference. By joining CALPIRG Students, you can see how easy it is to get involved in a large movement for social change.
