Join us on April 26, 2023 at 10:30am PT/1:30pm ET for the launch of the US Edition of the Pesticide Atlas, a powerful compendium on the state of pesticides around the world and in the United States—and why it matters. This conversation will bring together the authors of the US chapters of the global Pesticide Atlas for a compelling and timely virtual conversation about pesticides and the alarmingly persistent use of them in the United States and what we can do about it.
Moderated by the national bestselling author and sustainable food advocate, Anna Lappé, this lively discussion will bring together leaders at some of the most important civil society organizations working for common sense pesticide action, including Pesticide Action Network (PAN) North America, the Center for Biological Diversity, US Right to Know, and Hawaii Alliance for Progressive Action. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the connections between pesticide use and public health, the climate crisis, and biodiversity as well as a deeper understanding of the policy barriers and opportunities for action on pesticides here in the United States.
The world has never used as many pesticides as it does today, and the United States uses more than any other country. The world has also never had more evidence of the impacts of pesticide use. Join us to discuss the implications of the Pesticide Atlas and to harness the power of people coming together to debate, deliberate, and act for a world safe for us all.
