A chance to join the circle of OPIRG working groups – applications are open for 2nd term start-ups for volunteer groups wishing to work on social justice and/or environmental issues – if you have an issue that’s not being addressed that meets opirg’s mandate, you can apply to start a new working group – all working groups receive funding and support from OPIRG’s office, board of directors, staff, and other working groups.
