I think your organization has done a great job selecting issues where the public interest needs an advocate. Clare Feinson, Member
...there is a huge need for groups such as CALPIRG to watch out for “the little guy” and for the planet. Being part of CALPIRG makes me feel like I’m part of the team even though I’m not actually doing the work. Anastasia "Stacey" Bertolet, Member
It's a real privilege to do this work. It can be frustrating at times, it can be tedious at times, but it's also incredibly rewarding. Emily Rusch, Vice President and Senior Director of State Offices
