Current Campaigns:

Break Free from Plastics
This semester we’re taking on plastics for our lead campaign. Our goal is to get the city of New Brunswick to ban single use plastic bags. By doing this, we can be a leader in New Jersey and join the many other cities across the country that are saying no to plastic pollution.

New Voters Project
New Voters Project is a grassroots initiative to Get Out The Vote on campus, but also to institutionalize voting among students. Rutgers should make voting easier. From RAs having voter registration forms at your first floor meeting to busing students to the polls, there’s so much Rutgers can do to make voting easier!

Make Textbooks Affordable
Open & Affordable Textbooks: college is expensive, and the skyrocketing costs of textbooks aren’t helping. NJPIRG Students helped launch the Open & Affordable Textbooks (OAT) Project at Rutgers, and continues to work for more affordable educational materials by educating professors on OER books and mobilizing against the rise of expensive access codes and other new initiatives running up costs for students.

Save the Bees
We’re working with Bee farmers, administrators, and students to try and convince Rutgers – New Brunswick  to become the first certified “Bee-Friendly” campus in the State of New Jersey. We simply just can’t survive without Bees, and we need to do our best to help them thrive for generations to come!
