Help make food history in California! Please volunteer!
Dear Organic Consumer,
California could make history in November by becoming the first state to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food ingredients. But only if Prop 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, passes.
That's why we're reaching out to you. Will you volunteer today to approach the manager or owner of the retail store, CSA, food co-op, restaurant or farmer's market where you regularly buy your organic food and ask them to join the more than 100 retail stores that have already publicly endorsed Prop 37? We need thousands of volunteers to ask their local health food stores to endorse Prop 37, provide educational materials for their consumers, and donate to the California Right to Know campaign.
If you sign up here to volunteer, we will contact you and supply you with a script, endorsement posters, educational flyers and instructions for collecting donations.
We're asking our members in all 50 states to do this - but we're making a special appeal to those of you on the front lines in California, where we need the strongest show of support.
The California campaign and our other allies have raised almost $4 million dollars so far, but Monsanto, the Grocery Manufacturers, and the Farm Bureau will spend $20-40 million to try to defeat Prop 37.
Almost 50 other countries have mandatory GMO labeling laws. But here in the US - where our politicians are beholden to corporate lobbyists - we don't have the right to know what's in our food.
We can change that, thanks to this citizens' ballot initiative. But we need your help. Please volunteer today! Thank you!
