Tell Monsanto: It's Time to Label GMOs!

For the past 22 years, Monsanto has worked behind the scenes with our federal government to keep Americans in the dark if their food has been genetically engineered in a laboratory. In the past two years alone, Monsanto has spent more than $13.4 million to defeat GMO labeling efforts in California and Washington state. This is an outrageous fortune wasted!

At the same time, two GMO labeling bills have passed in Connecticut and Maine, while more than 25 states have introduced bills to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. The truth is: We're not backing down and we're not going away until we win GMO labeling!

If Monsanto can profit from a patent in their products and label their foods in India, China, Russia and South Africa, they can certainly agree that Americans should have this basic right as well. We need your help today. Every voice counts!

Dear Monsanto shareholder,

I am writing because I support strong mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods and I think it's time that Monsanto stop fighting the will of the American people, 90% of whom support GMO labeling.

For the past 20 years the U.S. government has continued to deny Americans the right to know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients. Already, 64 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 Monsanto can profit from a patent in their products and label their foods in India, China, Russia and South Africa, they can certainly agree that Americans should have this basic right as well.

America must join the rest of the world and pass a strong mandatory labeling bill that is in line with European standards to protect America's right to know what's in their food and inform consumers if our food has been genetically engineered.

Thank you for your consideration,

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
