The MASSPIRG chapter at UMass Dartmouth was founded in 1977. For 36 years we have worked on behalf of the public interest and stood up to powerful special interests. Last year MASSPIRG students at UMass Dartmouth registered nearly 1,700 students to vote, collected hundreds of cans and warm clothes for the needy, represented students' need for public transportation at public hearings, and created an after-school program partnership with Alma del Mar Charter School in New Bedford to educate elementary school students about energy efficiency. 

The thing that makes us effectie is that students here at UMass Dartmouth voted to fund MASSPIRG through a $9 per student, per semester waivable fee. We pool these resources statewide and hire our own professional staff like advocates, lawyers and organizers. We work with them to run local and statewide campaigns, and they fight on behalf of students full-time where big decisions are being made on Beacon Hill and in Washington DC.
