ACTION Meetup For Mandatory Labeling of GMO's In Colorado

Please join us to take action for mandatory labeling of GMO's. You have a right to know what is in the foods you are eating!

We are slowly but surely making progress. The group just united with an individual who is acting as the Colorado State Action Coordinator and representing the Coalition of States for Mandatory Labeling of GMO's.

Website development is on its way and the vision for all groups in Colorado with similar agenda to colloborate under unified resources is becoming realized.

Please join our efforts with your passion and contributions with this life changing agenda!

    The claim that there is no economic benefit from GMO flies in the face of farmer's statements that to compete they must use GMO's. Therefore the entirely of claims from the clip below is suspect.

    This is so true Elissa and sounds great! I'm looking forward to your research as well, as I am also a mother on a budget.

    Nice to meet you all! I'm really interested in helping design/structure an alternative for concerned folks. I think this could be valuable to the campaign? There is a way to provide healthy, non-GMO foods for our families, and I'd like to do the research. There is quite a bit out there supporting non-GMO, organic foods. However, in my experience, most average parents (my network) have no idea about the dangers of GMOs. They also have no idea how to feed their families w/out the common store bought foods. I really believe that if we are going to challenge folks and ask them to question what they are accustomed to purchasing, we should have a realistic, cost effective alternative.

    I've been reading all I can and it's quite alarming.

    similar info from nongmoproject.org:
    http://www.nongmoproject.org/learn-more/gmos-and-your-family/
    "What if I only buy organic?

    Shopping organic is a great step towards ensuring that your family eats the healthiest foods possible. The challenge is that although GMOs are an excluded method under the National Organic Program, organic certification does not require GMO testing. Choosing products that are Certified Organic AND Non-GMO Project Verified is the best way to make sure you are getting the safest, healthiest, highest-quality food for your family."

    good resource sorry I couldn't attend meeting...

    Here's the USDA's online document describing what USDA Organic certification means with respect to GMO's. Basically what it says is that use of GMO as a process (i.e., intentional use of GMO's) disqualifies a source from USDA Organic certification. If Organic processes are followed but the product still contains GMO elements, Organic certification is not revoked, which is a releif for farmers, but still means that you're not necessarily completely safe from GMO's by eating only Certified Organic.

    Excellent meeting: 12/27 Lots of new faces with good information. Thanks to all who attended.

    Hi Angelo...I already contacted them. They are being territorial and not interested in a collaborative effort. Tryna and Larry have had early unfortunate experiences with them.

    Did anyone eles receive the email regarding a Thrive meeting north of Denver in this coming week. In a human error event (being silly) I lost a lot of data including the where and when.
    I was wondering if anyone was going there to give them our network info/get theirs - so we can continue our state wide solitofication of this project.

    Please advise me accordingly i will be back on site tomorrow or use my email found on the data sheets i handed out at the last meeting.
    Play Safe
