I Support GMO Labeling in North Dakota!

At the moment, no legislation has been introduced in North Dakota, but we need your help in assisting local leaders, who are working to raise awareness of genetically engineered foods in our food supply and promote GMO labeling with every chance they get.

Right To Know GMO is an opportunity for the citizens of North Dakota to help establish the state as one of the front-runners in supporting this country's freedom of choice by demanding to know what’s in our food.

Polls regularly show that more than 90% of Americans want labeling of genetically engineered foods, and a 2011 poll found that GMO labeling has broad bipartisan support, with 89% of Republicans, 90% of Independents and 93% of Democrats favor GMO labeling in the U.S.

Please take a moment to let your Governor, Senators, and Representatives that you have a right to know what's in the food that we're eating and feeding our families.

A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to Governor Dalrymple, your Senators and Representatives.

Dear Governor Dalrymple, Senators and Representatives of the North Dakota Legislature,

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

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 North Dakota as well.

Join thousands of mothers, farmers and advocates in helping North Dakota lead the way on labeling 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]
