Dawna Knapp

Organizing Intern

Dawna interned at PANNA from July of 2011 to July of 2012. She worked on our multi-year, high-profile campaign to protect public health by eliminating methyl iodide from US agriculture. With Dawna’s leadership, the Safe Strawberries campaign employed creative tactics including a “mock fumigation” on the streets of San Francisco as well as on the steps of the State Capitol building; met with key decisionmakers and legislators; and was eventually successful in forcing this toxic fumigant off the market. 

Today, Dawna works on the Local Entities Outreach Systems team at the Sierra Club in San Francisco.
