Our Mission

Together we can make change happen.

It's a good thing, too. Our generation has some big challenges to tackle. It won't be easy, but by acting together we can find solutions.

That's where we come in. Here at MASSPIRG Students, we organize college students to solve some of the world's most pressing public interest problems.

MASSPIRG Students is an independent statewide student organization that works on issues like environmental protection, consumer protection, and hunger and homelessness. For over 40 years students with their campus PIRG chapters have been making a real difference in peoples' lives and winning concrete changes to build a better world.

We give students the skills and opportunity to practice effective citizenship. Both here on campus and out in the world, we mobilize students to investigate big social problems, come up with practical solutions, convince the media and public to pay attention, and get decision-makers to act.
