PAN Partners

PAn Partners

Since its inception nearly 30 years ago, PAN has recognized the power and importance of collaboration. Because the challenges posed by pesticides and corporate control of agriculture are much too large for any organization to tackle alone, working in partnership is a core value of our global network.

PAN has developed a powerful coalition of partners to get the job done. We share information and expertise, building alliances that protect our health and ecosystems. We work together to reduce reliance on toxic chemicals, promote food democracy and move toward a healthy, just and resilient system of agriculture. Below you will find in-depth profiles of some of our many PAN Partners:

Beyond Toxics

Leadership for a Clean and Just Oregon

Successful reforms include the statewide ban on grass seed burning, the 2009 IPM in schools bill and most recently the Safe Public Places Act signed into law this June, which establishes IPM for all state agencies on all state property, including forests, parks, roadways and buildings. Beyond Toxics is also working on the local level to create pesticide-free parks in Eugene and eliminate the use of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides throughout the state of Oregon. The group works to expose root causes of toxic pollution and help communities find effective, lasting solutions.
