We have changed our name from GMOfreeMARYLAND to needtoknow MARYLAND to reflect the current GMO Labeling Bill in Annapolis.

If you are passionate about your right to know what's in your food... it's time to make it happen in MARYLAND. The bill will be moving thru committee March 11 and March 18 and we need to ramp up the effort and be extremely pro active. And by " we " I mean You.. the person that is reading this right now.  The opportunity is huge... our window is small, but with your help it is doable.

Among the many states that have tried to enact GMO labeling, Maryland has a unique opportunity, in that our steering committee includes the Directors from Organic Consumers Association, Food & Water Watch, Beyond Pesticides, GMO free Maryland, Center for Food Safety and some widely experienced and tenacious litigators, legislators and activists.  We can take advantage of this by adding a ground swell of GRASSROOTS activism to get our message out, built the support system of sponsors, donors and endorsements and hammer our Law Makers in Annapolis with positive re-enforcement that can't be ignored.

As always: encourage everyone to join the Facebook page at www.GMOfreeMARYLAND.org. We are just hitting 3,300 yeah. That number should be well over 100,000. Have you invited everyone you know to join?

Look to and SHARE the campaign website www.needtoknowMARYLAND.org .  It will give you the tools to become effective in your community and in these efforts. This site is extremely important to the movement of the GMO Labeling Bill. Your efforts will make or break our chances.

We will be posting events here:   Be inconvenienced, go out of your way, take the day off, miss a football game, bring your friends. Waiting until May 25th or Oct 29th to March against Monsanto somewhere within driving distance, will not get the job done..  The fight is here... and now, in your own backyard, your grocery store and in Annapolis. Use this site to find events that NEED your support.   Use this site by hosting your own GMO event and driving traffic to it by getting your friends to join up,

The ACTION is already underway. Remember we will be introducing these Bills to the HEALTH committees on March 11th and 18th..
