Our Focus

Farm workers in field

PAN is working to eliminate a long legacy of injustice in our food and farming systems through our collaborative work on farmworker protection. Agricultural workers and their families are on the frontlines of exposure to hazardous pesticides – at work, school, and at home.

Agroecology is a systemic, transformative solution that can not only address our climate, food and biodiversity crises, but also supports the health and rights of farmworkers, Indigenous Peoples and rural communities.

PAN is working to secure resources to support farmers in transitioning to agroecology and alternative farming practices across the state.
