Tell California to label GMOs

Dear Friend, Let's finish what we started with Prop 37! This week a bill to label genetically engineered foods could be introduced in California and thousands of mothers, farmers and activists across the state are joining together to show their support! Citizens in more than 60 other countries enjoy the basic right of knowing if their food has been genetically engineered, but for the past 20 years Americans have been denied this basic democratic right. Already the opposition is working behind the scenes and we need your help today! If passed, California would become the first state in the U.S. to require mandatory labeling of GMOs in our food. Right now 13 new GMO crops are awaiting approval at the USDA, including Monsanto’s 2,4-D Agent Orange corn and the “Botox” GMO apple. At the same time, the FDA is getting ready to approve genetically engineered salmon. If approved, AquaBounty’s GMO salmon would be the first genetically engineered animal allowed on the market and it would appear on your plates unlabeled! With your help, we can change that! Join us to help make GMO labeling a reality in California!
