Our Campaigns

Every spring, MPIRG students from across the state come together for Issues and Actions, where we vote for the issues that will become MPIRG's statewide campaigns for the following year.  These are the campaigns to which MPIRG's paid staff will devote the most time: researching, developing policies, and lobbying legislators on our behalf.  This year, our statewide campaigns are Health Care for All, Affordable Higher Education, and Environment and the Economy.

In addition to these statewide campaigns, students on each campus are free to work on any other issues they choose, whether on a campus, local, or statewide level.  With the support of MPIRG staff, members of Carleton MPIRG have developed our own campaign to get our county government to enact policies that will encourage the growth of a local, sustainable food system in our region.
