Toxic Free NC’s board of directors is in search of dedicated individuals and community members to help steer the vision, mission, resources, and long-term sustainability of the organization.

The global pandemic has increased visibility of longstanding inequities in access to clean air, clean water, and healthy food. Now, more than ever, we need strong ambassadors for our mission who are passionate about public health and environmental justice, and who are ready to commit time, talent, and treasure to ensuring the organization's ongoing success.

We especially seek board members who bring some or all of the following skills, knowledge, or lived experiences:

  • Passion, time, and energy to be an ambassador for our mission (required)
  • Experience as a pesticide-impacted community member
  • Commitment to racial equity (required)
  • Knowledge of regenerative farming, farmworker justice, pollinator issues, environmental health, children’s health, or a relevant science
  • Skills or experience in fundraising, nonprofit financial oversight, program design, or communications
  • Previous experience serving on a board of directors is a big plus

For more information including primary duties and service commitment, please read the description of board service.

To apply: please submit a statement of interest.

We will be following up with prospective candidates over the summer months, with new board member nomination and orientation in the fall, and terms officially starting in December. A seat is open immediately for the Treasurer position.
