~Help Get GMO Food Labeling Passed in November~
All eyes are on California because we collected enough signatures to get labeling for genetically engineered food on the November ballot. Join with GMO-Free Santa Cruz to get this historic initiative passed so we can know what is in our food and make informed decisions.
“NEXT STEPS” EVENT
Please join us for a very important meeting that will be both an introduction to Phase 3 of the campaign - and a celebration of Santa cruz's success of collecting 15,000 signatures!
We will be discussing Endorsements & Outreach to our community to educate and to persuade each and every person to vote YES in November.
Come meet Pamm Larry, the grandmother who started the California Right to Know campaign and find out how you can help even if you have just a little time.
Date: Sunday, June 10th
Time: 3pm - 5pm
Place: Live Oak Grange
Special Guest: Pamm Larry (Woman who started this initiative!)
Please RSVP on Event Page, or emailing us your RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org

NO TIME TO HELP?
You could still make a BIG difference with just a little time!
You are probably saying to yourself, “I really believe in this cause - I just don’t have the time to help”. But, there are things you can do that will take very little of your time and still make a big difference, such as:
ask your health practitioners and businesses you frequent to display one of our campaign signs that expresses support for GMO labeling - (signs coming soon)
ask these same businesses and/or organizations you belong to (even your church) if they'll endorse the labeling initiative by filling out our short endorsement form - (coming soon also)
volunteer to put a campaign sign on your front lawn
write a letter to the editor
encourage everyone you know to vote for the GMO Food Labeling measure in November
"ALL EYES ARE ON CALIFORNIA!"
We made it! We got the Label GMO Food Initiative ON the Nov. ballot!
19 states have attempted genetically engineered food labeling bills and none of them have passed. It's up to us folks!
“For decades, Monsanto has controlled the world's food supply by buying off politicians and regulatory agencies, intimidating small farmers, manipulating the outcome of scientific studies, lying to consumers - and threatening to sue states like Vermont if they dare to pass a GMO labeling law. It's time to take back our food. Our farms. Our power. It's time to show Monsanto the extraordinary things we can do when we all pull together" quote from Ronnie Cummins, Organic Consumers Assoc.
The opposition has already launched their misinformation campaign to scare Californians into voting against labeling. They have the money and the staff. BUT THEY DON’T HAVE US! Let’s all pull together - we only have a few short months to make a difference!
