About Us

Californians for Pesticide Reform (CPR) is a statewide coalition of more than 190 organizations, founded in 1996. Our mission is to protect public health, improve environmental quality and support a sustainable and just agricultural system by building a diverse movement across California to change statewide and local pesticide policies and practices.


CPR has built a diverse, multi-interest coalition to challenge the powerful political and economic forces opposing change. Our member organizations sign onto our platform and include farmworker, public health, children’s health, and educational and environmental groups; clean air and water organizations; health practitioners; environmental justice groups; labor organizations; farmers and sustainable agriculture advocates. We prioritize building leadership in communities living on the frontlines of pesticide exposure.


Our Platform:

  • Eliminate use of the worst pesticides–including those that cause cancer, reproductive harm or acute poisoning.
  • Reduce overall use of the remaining pesticides.
  • Promote the use of sustainable pest control solutions in our farms, communities, forests, homes and yards.
  • Protect people’s right-to-know about pesticide use in our neighborhoods, counties and state.
