Sonoma Safe Agriculture Safe Schools (Sonoma SASS) is a coalition of community organizations and individuals paving the way for safer land management policies and practices primarily around our schools and communities. Working to protect public health and the environment, Sonoma SASS raises public awareness and provides community education to work toward replacing synthetic pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has”.
Who We Are
The Sonoma SASS coalition includes a broad group of Sonoma County non-profit organizations and global partners. The coalition convened in 2018 with the goal of coordinating efforts to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides — herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides — in Sonoma County. Each of the Sonoma SASS organizations approaches the issue of pesticide use from a different lens — worker safety/rights, environmental justice, watershed protection, environment stewardship and public health. The broad base and diversity of our coalition strengthens our campaigns. We invite you to get involved.
