Toxic Free NC is hiring a Just & Sustainable Agriculture Program Manager to strengthen our network of community leaders taking action on environmental health and justice.

Toxic Free NC has been fighting pesticide pollution since 1986.

Our focus is to serve communities across the state, especially farmworkers, children, and those most impacted by pesticide pollution.

As a champion for environmental health, justice, and local agro-ecological solutions, the JSA Program Manager supports community members across North Carolina building collective action for change, with a goal to strengthen and expand Toxic Free NC’s statewide network.

Grant-writing experience, Spanish language fluency, and knowledge of pesticide impacts are strongly preferred.
