Food Democracy Now Food Democracy Now

I support GMO Labeling in California!

Currently, no bill to label GMOs has been introduced in the California legislature this year. But please take a moment to join the thousands of mothers, farmers and activists across the state to show your support labeling genetically engineered foods because your elected officials need to hear from as many of us as possible! 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 Prop 37 had passed, California would have become the first state in the U.S. to require mandatory labeling of GMOs in our food. Let's finish what we started with Prop 37!

Right now 13 new GMO crops are awaiting approval at the USDA, including Dow Chemical’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!

A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to Governor Brown, your Senator and Assembly Member,

Dear Governor Brown, Senator and Assembly Member of the California Legislature,

As your constituent, I encourage you to pass legislation that would label genetically engineered foods in California.

Already, more than 60 other countries around the world inform their citizens if their food has been genetically engineered in a laboratory with simple labels, and it's time that we share that basic right. If the same companies can label foods containing GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in Russia, China and South Africa, I believe they should label them in California as well.

Join thousands of mothers, farmers and advocates in helping California lead the way on label of genetically engineered foods, because we have a right to know what's in the food that we're eating and feeding our families.

Sincerely, 

[Your Name]
