We're inspired every day by the commitment, creativity and smarts of our supporters. You are farmers concerned about the land and your family's future. You are moms and dads who care about your kids' health, neighbors who want a safe community, and farmworkers who know there's a better way. You are health professionals concerned about the evidence linking chemicals and illness.
PAN is the first place I turn for knowledge about particular pesticides. It's top-flight science meets plainspoken English.Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., biologist and author
You grow, pick, buy, cook and eat food. You send emails, sign petitions, write letters to the editor and show up for events. You talk to your family and neighbors about what you know, and why they should care about pesticides and health. You put your money where your heart is, at the market and with your donations. We couldn't do our work without you.
If you're new to the PAN community, welcome! There are many ways you can get engaged to help us make change.
Last year, our supporters sent hundreds of thousands of emails to state legislators, Congress, the White House and EPA. Together, we put persistent chemicals on Congress' agenda, blocked a new carcinogen from California's strawberry fields, and won the national phaseout of a dangerous insecticide. Join the team!
Getting the word out about the issues we all care about moves this work forward. The more people know, the harder they will work toward a healthy tomorrow. Whether at a neighborhood block party or through social media networks, sharing information about PAN and our work builds awareness and power.

Together, we can get it done.
