Through research, public education and outreach, we serve as counterweights to the influence of powerful special interests that threaten our health, safety or well-being.

PIRG President Faye Park talks to CBS news about toxic ingredients in children's makeup.

All Americans want a healthier, safer, more secure future. U.S. PIRG Education Fund works to find common ground around common sense solutions that will help make that future a reality. Whether it’s highlighting the overuse of antibiotics in agriculture, researching solutions to our country’s plastic waste crisis, or educating policy makers on ways we can transform our transportation systems to tackle climate change, the problems we work on aren’t progressive or conservative. They’re just problems that our country shouldn’t tolerate in an age of great abundance and technological progress.
