Working Groups at APIRG

One of the main focuses of APIRG is to provide funding and support for Working Groups. Our Working Groups are collectives of U of A students and community members who come to us with their ideas and passion for change. They work together on an issue that falls within the APIRG mandate, with a focus on research, events, actions, publications, or other diverse activities. Working Groups are living out APIRGs commitment to turning social concern into community and political ACTION!
