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 2016-2017 OPIRG York working groups were:

— York University Black Graduate Student's Collective
