Work with U.S. PIRG

Available Positions

 

PROBLEMS THAT AFFECT ALL OF US

Even in our most divided moments, all Americans want a healthier, safer, more secure future. PIRG’s role is to find common ground around the commonsense solutions that will make that future a reality. Whether it’s working to stop the overuse of antibiotics in agriculture, addressing our country’s plastic waste crisis, or tackling climate change by transforming our transportation systems, 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.
