CALL TO ACTION
All four of our Action Groups are open to receiving new members! Action Groups are the life of OPIRG York!
Each group works autonomously on anti-oppressive, anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, and environmental justice campaigns and issues. Whether your vision for a just future centers around socialism, anarchism, anti-colonialism and anti-racism, just climate transitions—OPIRG wants to resource and nurture your work toward justice!

Major human rights organizations, faith leaders, politicians and millions of people around the world agree: Israel is practicing apartheid. It’s time to stop it.
Join OPIRG York in signing this pledge and stand #TogetherAgainstApartheid.
This pledge will be used to demonstrate to world leaders that a growing number of people recognize the injustice of Israel’s policies and are standing together against apartheid, and that we expect them to do the same.
