A few years ago, when I first moved to Southern California, I decided to learn how to surf. My favorite part about surfing in San Diego is swimming out past where the waves break to where the water is still and just lying down on the board, looking into the water. But those idyllic waters are changing rapidly, and not for the better.
This week our UC San Diego chapter won a successful campaign to pass a campus-wide referendum to keep CALPIRG here at UCSD.
As we ring in 2018, California will have a number of new laws that impact all of us. Below is a set of notable laws that went into effect January 1st that CALPIRG helped pass.
After months and months of hard work, we are proud that voters saw through the deceptive ballot measure funded by out-of-state plastic companies and voted to continue to protect our ocean.
This spring break we took a road trip, but not to Cancun. We took 30 college students with CALPIRG Students at the UCs on an Alternative Spring Break media tour in support of the Save the Bag Ban Campaign.
Plastic bags pollute our ocean and beaches and kill thousands of sea turtles every year. That’s why CALPIRG helped make California the first state in the country to ban plastic grocery bags.
