FL PIRG: For the People

"When corporate wrongdoing threatens our health or our safety, or violates fundamental principles of fairness and justice, FloridaPIRG stands up for the public."
That's part of the mission statement for FL PIRG, a great organization to get involved with if you're interested in doing work on the community & state level. And now's the time to get a jump start: On Tuesday, March 23 in St. Pete, FL PIRG affiliates are hosting an activist workshop from 4 to 7pm at the Repower America office at 146 2nd Street N. In an email to the FL PIRG listserv, legislative advocate Brad Ashwell wrote that the training "will cover the best techniques for organizing your neighbors to take action, and the best ways to persuade local media to cover an issue."
