Pesticide Action Network North America
The Organization: Pesticide Action Network has worked to replace pesticides with ecologically sound alternatives since 1982. PAN North America is one of five regional facilitating organizations serving a global network of more than 600 civil society groups in over 90 countries who share these goals. In North America, we link over 150 affiliated health, consumer, labor, environment, human rights, progressive agriculture and public interest groups in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. with thousands of supporters worldwide to promote a safe, fair and clean food system through research and analysis, policy development, public education, media outreach, identification of alternatives and local, national and international policy advocacy campaigns. PAN's Berkeley office has 12 staff plus interns, volunteers and fellows; we also have a Midwest office in Minneapolis and a advocacy office in Sacramento. We maintain a primary Web site <panna.org> and related specialized sites and online services <What'sOnMyFood.org> and <PesticideInfo.org>. For more information see www.panna.org.
