CONNPIRG is a student-funded and student-run non-profit, with a 45 year track record of winning on important issues like protecting the environment, turning out the youth vote, and making college more affordable. We believe that students have the power to make real change before they graduate – because they have. Here in Connecticut, students have helped to pass a statewide ban on single-use plastics bags!
Despite that huge success, our work isn’t finished. We’re now tackling one of the worst forms of single-use plastics – polystyrene (also known as styrofoam). We’ll be making sure our state legislators see the public support for moving our communities beyond plastic, through grassroots action and advocacy. The best way to get involved in this effort is to apply for an on-campus internship with CONNPIRG students! It’s a great way to gain some valuable campaign experience, and meet people who share your vision for a better future. Apply here!
