Issue | Budget, Tax

Campaign for Budget Transparency

The ability to see how government collects and spends money is fundamental to a thriving, participatory democracy.

Issue | Health Care

Campaign for Health Care Reform

America’s health care system is structured for drug industry, insurance company, and medical specialty profits, not better health outcomes for you.

Issue | Safe Energy

Campaign for Safe Energy

Nuclear power is inherently dangerous, potentially catastrophic and a terrible investment for our country. The nuclear meltdowns in Fukushima, Japan have become the most recent example of that troubling reality.

Issue | Solid Waste

Campaign for Zero Waste

In a throwaway society where air and water pollution threaten our health and environment, MASSPIRG is fighting to get the Commonwealth on the path to a strong zero waste future.

Issue | Tax

Close Corporate Tax Loopholes

No company should be able to game the tax system to avoid paying what it legitimately owes. And, yet, establishing shell companies in offshore havens for the purpose of tax avoidance is becoming more the rule than the exception for at least 83 of the nation's top 100 publicly traded companies.

Fighting The High Cost Of Rx Drugs

Brand-name drug companies have been paying off generic drug makers to delay competition and keep prices high. This widespread pay-for-delay scheme needs to be put to an end. 

Keep Mass On Track

MASSPIRG is working on Beacon Hill and in Washington, D.C., to ensure that we fully fund public transportation in the commonwealth and across the country, expand transit options for everyone, and prioritize a “fix-it-first” approach for maintaining our transit infrastructure.

Issue

Label GMO Foods

The U.S. remains one of only two industrialized countries without mandatory GMO labeling. While some major grocery stores, like Whole Foods, have committed to label foods containing genetically modified ingredients, labeling GMO foods shouldn’t be the exception—it should be the law.

Let's Get Moving

From the Berkshires to the Cape, our transportation needs are simply not being met. Our roads and bridges are crumbling and unsafe, our children suffer from above average asthma rates, and our work force spends on average 48 hours a year stuck in traffic. 

Protecting Consumers

MASSPIRG’s consumer program works to alert the public to hidden dangers and scams and to ban anti-consumer practices and unsafe products.
