Pesticide Action Network
In addition to coalition organizing, we bring our strength in grassroots science and strategic communications to campaigns. Explore our current campaigns and find out how you and your community can get involved. Since our inception more than 30 years ago, PAN has recognized the importance of collaboration.
Building a healthy, sustainable food system and tackling corporate control of agriculture are challenges much too large for any one organization to take on alone. Cultivating powerful, effective partnerships is core to our work — part of our organizational DNA.
At Pesticide Action Network (PAN) North America, we work to create a just, thriving food system. For too long, pesticide and biotech corporations have dictated how we grow food, placing the health and economic burdens of pesticide use on farmers, farmworkers and rural communities.
We work with those on the frontlines to tackle the pesticide problem — and reclaim the future of food and farming. PAN North America is one of five regional centers worldwide. We link local and international consumer, labor, health, environment and agriculture groups into an international citizens’ action network. PAN works to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. We challenge the global proliferation of pesticides, defend basic rights to health and environmental quality, and work to ensure the transition to a just and viable food system.
