CALPIRG (CALIFORNIA PUBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP) go back


The California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization with a staff of policy specialists who educates the public about environmental pollution, unsafe products, false advertising, toy safety studies, the influence of special interests in politics, and recycling programs which create a demand for recycled goods.


CALPIRG combines the expertise of professionals and contributions of individual citizens to effect legislative reforms on a state and national level for safe drinking water, clean air, efficient sources of energy, food safety laws, limits on federal and state political contributions and spending, and many other consumer-related issues. Contributions to CALPIRG are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions because the organization lobbies for its own special interests.


Targets of CALPIRG: Polluting industries of mining, timber, nuclear energy, coal and oil; keeping nuclear reactors from being launched into space; and all of the subjects named in the introduction.
