Thank you for your vote!! NJPIRG won the Referendum 2013!
NJPIRG is a nonpartisan, statewide, student-run nonprofit that has been working on behalf of students since 1972. Over the past 30 years we have won concrete results for students.
Our New Voters Project has registered over 11,300 voters since 2010. Energy Service Corps has taught over 10,000 K-12 kids about energy efficiency. We've had 15 cities in New Jersey to go on record agsint corpoate money in politics, including North Brunswick, Princeton, Highland Park, Essex County, and Newark.
NJPIRG is able to be so effective because thousands of Rutgers students pitch in $11.20 on their term bills. Every 3 years, Rutgers students must come together to reaffirm the waiveable fee on our term bills. Students voted to keep NJPIRG Student Chapters at Rutgers for another 3 years!
