When I buy something, I think I own it. I don't want to have to ask anyone's permission to open it up and try to fix it.
As there is ever more to be done, I like that WashPIRG works to solve important issues while educating the public about them, and is playing an active role on many fronts. Frank Kroger, Member
I decided to support an organization that doesn’t seem to rely on partisan politics to accomplish goals, and as a pediatrician, I have been especially interested in OSPIRG’s projects that impact the health of children and infants... Patricia Jett, Member
I’ve continued to support PIRG’s work because I want to help to eliminate single-use plastics, protect the planet and save the bees, and address consumer protection issues. Don Ewing, Member
