Working Groups 2016-2017

Working groups are central to the functioning of OPIRG. They consist of a group of volunteers who work on a specific issue pertaining to anti-oppressive, anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, social justice and environmental issues. The working groups are dedicated to enacting change on campus and/or in the broader community, and function autonomously. Working groups receive funding from OPIRG and access to the OPIRG office. OPIRG York is committed to change at York University but we ALSO envision larger community interaction. We want to blend student organizing with grassroots activism to ensure broad social and environmental change.

 The Working Groups for the 2016-2017 school year are:
  • York University Black Graduate Students Collective
  • Fossil Free York
  • Revolutionary Student Movement
  • Filipino Canadian Youth Alliance
  • Prisoner Correspondence Project Toronto
  • Fight for $15 and Fairness @ YorkU
  • Capoeira Feminista
  • Cinema Politica @ York
