Come learn more about US PIRG's Fellowship...
Every day, powerful people are making decisions that affect our health, our safety, and our future. In Civics 101, we are taught that these decisions should be based on the public interest: that’s how a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is supposed to work. Yet in the real world, on issue after issue, we see powerful interests corrupting the democratic process, twisting public policy to serve their own ends, all too often at the public’s expense.
That’s where U.S. PIRG comes in. Powerful corporations have their lobbyists. We advocate on behalf practical solutions, inform the public, and make the case to decision-makers. And when powerful special interests stand in the way, we mobilize ordinary citizens to make their voices heard in city halls, state capitols, regulatory agencies, Congress, the White House, or wherever it will make a difference.
