- Energy Service Corps. We need to change the way we use our energy, starting with energy use at home. This term we're training a team of Energy Educators to educate 1,500 K-12 students and run educational events on campus about the importance of energy conservation and energy efficiency. This campaign meets at 6pm on Wednesdays in the EMU in Century Room B.
- Hunger & Homelessness. 30% of children in Oregon experience food insecurity, the highest rate in the nation. We are partnering with Food for Lane County to alleviate hunger and homelessness in Eugene. Our goal this year is to provide 30,000 meals for kids and their families in need in Eugene through fundraisers, food collection, and direct community service. This campaign meets on Wednesdays at 6pm in Chapman 203.
- Protect Crater Lake. Crater Lake is the crown jewel of Oregon and needs to be protected. The National Forest Service is currently considering a reckless proposal to clear-cut the old growth forests around Crater lake National Park. We're fighting to make sure the logging companies don't trample pristine wilderness and cause irreparable harm to Crater Lake's delicate ecosystem. This campaign meets Thursdays at 6:30 in EMU Century Room B.
- Renters' Rights. Stop the Rip-offery! OSPIRG is working to educate students in Eugene about their rights as consumers and renters so that they can make informed decisions.
