Currently, the nation's eyes are on us! Thanks to all of your efforts this spring, it was reported late last week in the New York Times that we are "[t]he most closely watched labeling effort... that could influence not just food packaging but the future of American agriculture."
Who did that?
We gathered close to a million signatures statewide - now that's cause for a pat on the back! We'd like to invite all of you who helped us with signature gathering to come out to a celebration party that we will be holding on Saturday, June 9th at 10:30am in the mid-peninsula so as to be as central as possible to everyone in our group. The exact location will be announced shortly. For all of you who braved the rain and gave up prime weekend time to come out and talk to people on the streets or had those uncomfortable conversations with your friends and families asking them to sign, this is for you. There will be plenty of non-GMO food (of course)!
If you haven't been involved with us before but are interested in getting involved with us in the future, this will be a great event to come meet us so we can share info with you and get you plugged in with the rest of us! No specific skills necessary - all you need is your desire to help!
Saturday, June 9th, 10:30am
Place to be announced shortly!!
Looking forward to seeing you there! Hope you can make it!
