NYPIRG Friends Happy Hour Event

Thanks so much for your support as we grow NYPIRG bigger and stronger.
Dear Friends,
Our November 20, 2019 NYPIRG Friends Happy Hour Event was a great success, and we all had a wonderful time proudly celebrating the most productive year in NYPIRG‚Äôs history! It was a fantastic evening and a testament to the crucial work that NYPIRG has accomplished in the past year — and the dedicated staff, volunteers, alumni, friends, coalition partners, and supporters who have made that work possible.
NYPIRG will continue to tackle the big issues and take on the powerful on behalf of the public. As your watchdog in New York, we are proud of our decades of tireless work to strengthen democracy, fight for the rights of consumers and voters, and protect the environment and public health. Thank you!
Sincerely,
Blair Horner
Executive Director
