What Do You Stand For?

Minnesota is a great place to live. Don't you think it should stay that way? We do, too. That is why we empower students and teach them how to engage their communities. We help them identify issues that matter today so that they are prepared to lead and inspire tomorrow. MPIRG stands for Minnesota. What do you stand for?

Economic Justice

Students and workers on college campuses face a seemingly insurmountable cycle of debt every day. This debt can be attributed to universities increasing tuition and consistently subcontracting on-campus workers to other corporations, effectively cutting salaries and reducing the potential for unionization. MPIRG stands behind students and workers by fighting for a living wage on campuses, fighting for the rights of adjunct faculty, and educating students on navigating loan repayment. Will you stand with us?


Our democratic process will determine the future direction of Minnesota. Unfortunately, actively engaging in our democracy isn't always easy. By simplifying the process and facilitating greater involvement, we give students the skills they need to weigh in on decisions that shape our communities. MPIRG stands for Democracy.

Environmental Justice

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. We help young people confront industrial interests when they come at the expense of our health and environment. By empowering students with the skills to identify and address environmental injustice, we work to protect the people and natural beauty that define Minnesota. MPIRG stands for Environmental Justice.
