Healthy People and Communities: NCAP eliminates pesticide use in urban
areas in order to protect people and communities from toxic exposure.
Special emphasis is placed on ensuring that children and families have safe environments at home, and in areas such as schools and parks.
Healthy Food and Farms: NCAP promotes organic and sustainable food production through strengthening and supporting research, demonstration, and training systems that seek ecological solutions to agricultural pest problems. In doing so, we collaborate with farmers, researchers, universities, food and farm advocates, policy makers, other non-profit organizations, and progressive, green-minded companies.
Healthy Water and Wildlife: NCAP uses litigation to hold federal agencies accountable to protecting northwest waterways and endangered species, particularly salmon and steelhead, from harm caused by pesticide pollution.
