Welcome, Anna!

by Fawn Pattison, Executive Director

Toxic Free NC is delighted to welcome Anna Jensen as our new Community Organizer!

Anna grew up in North Carolina and loves every part of it, from the Appalachians to the Outer Banks. She was a Student Action with Farmworkers intern with Toxic Free NC in the summer of 2007 and has been hooked on environmental and farmworker justice ever since.

Anna can communicate in 2 languages, holding a B.A. in Spanish and English from UNC-Chapel Hill. She has worked with farmworkers in the tobacco fields of eastern NC, where she acted as a health outreach worker with the NC Farmworkers Project, and the Central Valley of California, where she conducted research for her master's thesis at UC Davis.  When not talking to farmworkers or pondering how to bridge the gap between public policy and everyday life, she can be found in the kitchen concocting something involving lots of butter and sugar.

Anna will be leading Toxic Free NC's campaigns with migrant and seasonal farm workers, as well as conducting outreach and education around the state for all our programs. She is available to give presentations and workshops in English and Spanish. Anna is also our main media contact. You can reach her by email: anna@toxicfreenc.org or by phone at (919) 833-8655.
