We’re committed to a vision of a healthier future. A future where all families and communities have access to clean air, and safe drinking water. Where the food we eat is not only good for us, but it’s grown in ways that are good for the planet. A future where we are secure in the knowledge that we can all live healthy lives.
High Value Health Care
We are spending far too much, and getting far too little in return, for our health care dollar.
How Safe Is Our Food?
Americans rely on a vast network of farms and businesses to provide safe food daily. But in recent years, a string of high-profile recalls ranging from romaine lettuce to millions of pounds of beef to Ritz and Goldfish crackers have called into question the system developed to ensure safe food reaches people’s plates. The ubiquity of the problem can make grocery shopping a game of Russian roulette where what a family has for dinner could make them seriously sick.
Make Higher Education Affordable
Make VW Pay
VW cheated the public and must be held accountable.
Modernize The Vote
We keep producing and consuming more and more “stuff.” How can we do a better job of improving the quality of our lives? Our New Economy program is finding answers.
PIRG Consumer Watchdog
For more than 40 years, we’ve been educating consumers how to protect themselves and their rights. We fight to get dangerous products off store shelves, to end exploitative practices, and ensure a level playing field in the marketplace. And we advocate for new rules, institutions and policies to defend consumers from the economic and political power of special interests. Right now, our Watchdog team is focused on consumer threats from data breaches to dangerous toys.
