Current as of August 18, 2012

Democratic and Republican administrations, and Congress, have repeatedly ignored the overwhelming majority of Americans who favor labeling genetically engineered (GE) food in the marketplace. Our politicians seem to be listening to the corporate executives (donors) instead of the citizenry. But in California, the people have a right to craft laws of their choosing. Proposition 37, on the ballot in California on November 6, would mandate labeling of foods containing GE ingredients. If we win this fight in California, manufacturers will likely begin to label food nationally for GE ingredients.

Please make your voice heard by signing the petition:

  • Tell the corporate players opposing your right to know what’s in your food that if they want your business, they can’t sell-out organic values.
  • Thank independent organic business that have put their money where their mouth is.
  • Ask large organic brands/companies that are missing in action to pony up. Talk is cheap.

We will send your statement along with thousands of others to organic corporate and cooperative executives. They will listen to the most powerful authority in organics — the consumers. You hold the purse strings!
