We, as a Fitchburg State University student-run organization, #PledgeToStayHome during this COVID-19 pandemic, for the betterment of our local and global communities! We are encouraging other student groups and organizations to join us in this movement. It feels endless right now, and physical distancing may seem difficult at times. But, if we all pledge to keep each other safe by staying home, we will make a real difference!

Message from the MASSPIRG Board Chair Regarding COVID19:

As I’m sure most of you saw, on Wednesday the COVID-19 virus was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

We are taking recommendations from college and university leaders and public health experts and taking proactive steps to mitigate the potential impact of COVID-19 in our campus and off-campus communities. This includes canceling all in-person events and activities for the foreseeable future and requiring staff to work from home. We are encouraging everyone to practice social distancing to protect not only yourself, but the people around you.

But that doesn’t mean we need to stop our important work to protect the environment, mitigate hunger, and promote civic engagement. We started off the year strong and we can keep working to make the world a better place, even if we need to do it differently for a while.

We know that climate change, the upcoming 2020 election, and the high cost textbooks will all still be here once this all passes. So we’re currently working to update our campaign plans to incorporate more digital and phonebanking actions and continue chapter and campaign meetings across the country through online-conferencing.

We will continue to provide updates to any changes in protocol as well as any rescheduling of future events as necessary.

We're also keeping an eye on those that might try to take advantage of this public health crisis by putting out misinformation or price gouging consumers. You can check out our top 5 tips to avoid price gouging on Amazon on the U.S. PIRG page.

If you have ideas for ways we can make an impact on issues related to the virus we should undertake, please don’t hesitate to let us know by emailing [email protected]

We know we are entering uncharted waters as our communities transition to remote classes and take measures to mitigate the spread of the virus. But we also know our generation has the energy and innovation to keep up the work for a better world.

Make sure to stay up to date on our campaigns by following us on social media.

Best,

Victoria Ferrara-Lawlor

Campuses around the country are homes to some of our most capable and active citizens. So it is reasonable to believe that students are the ones to be on the forefront of a transition to 100% renewable energy. Thats’ why @fitchburgstate should be a #100RECampus.

Come by our table on Monday October 7th in the Main Quad 11AM-2PM and sign our petition for a commitment to 100% Renewable Energy

“The right to vote is something many of us take for granted. Many have fought, marched, and suffered for the right to cast our ballots for who we want to be our leaders. Some people will never have that luxury. Therefore, it is crucially important that we make sure we do not waste the opportunity to not only register, but to vote and take part in our democratic system.” -SGA President Matt Badagliacca

A big thanks to Fitchburg State SGA Pres. for coming out to our NVRD table on Tuesday. With his help we were able to get 42 students to pledge to vote in upcoming elections!

See you in the Main Quad tomorrow starting at 10am come and register to vote!
