Start or Join an Action Group

Action groups are the core of OPIRG. They are groups of volunteers who organize autonomously to address a specific social justice or environmental issue. Our current Action Groups focus on topics like ableism, religious tolerance, food security, labour rights, environmentalism, skill sharing, and the arts. 

 

Additional action groups will be accepted at the discretion of the board.
