On November 6, Californians will vote on Proposition 37, which will require all genetically modified foods to be clearly labeled. This is an historic campaign – it will mean that for the first time in the United States, consumers will have the right to know what’s in the food they eat and feed to their families.
Nearly one million Californians put Prop 37 on the ballot, and over 90% of Americans say they support labeling GMOs.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that a host of pesticide and junk food companies, led by Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical, have committed nearly $40 million to defeating our efforts.
That’s why we need your help.
Can you sign up for the national phone bank to help reach one million more Californians before Election Day, November 6?
Proposition 37 is a common sense ballot measure that will require food sold in California to be labeled if it contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Unfortunately, opponents in the pesticide and junk food industry aren’t going to let this pass without a fight, and they’re spending a million dollars a day to confuse voters. They’d rather spend millions than let consumers make an informed decision about what they eat. Even more disturbing, no long term studies have ever proven genetically engineered foods safe – not for you, not for your family, not for anyone.
Across the country, passionate volunteers and supporters are joining together to make sure that Proposition 37 becomes law.
Please join the effort and sign up to volunteer for your Right to Know today!
This is the best chance that we have ever had to label genetically engineered food in the United States. For decades, companies like Monsanto and Dow have stopped efforts to inform consumers about what they eat. It’s time for the US to join more than 50 other countries that already require labeling, but it won’t happen without you.
Please volunteer today. Victory is within reach – with your help.
