Help make food
history in California! Please
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.
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!
