WHAT IS AN ACTION GROUP?

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, and/or just climate transitions—OPIRG wants to resource and nurture your work toward justice!

OPIRG York is committed to change at York University but we also envision a larger, community interaction and engagement. We work to blend student organizing with grassroots activism to ensure broad social and environmental change. As such, our Action Groups are dedicated to not only driving change on campus, but in the broader community as well.

Some examples of past Action Groups include: Cinema Politica, Tools For Change, YU Divest, Prisoner Correspondence Project Toronto, and the Palestine Solidarity Collective (PSC).
