"ALL EYES ARE ON CALIFORNIA!" 19 states have attempted genetically engineered food labeling bills and none of them have passed. It's up to us folks! What are you willing to do help get this initiative passed? We only have a few short months to make a difference. The opposition has already launched their misinformation campaign to scare Californian's to vote against labeling. They have the money and the staff BUT THEY DON'T HAVE US!
Please join us for this very important upcoming meeting to introduce you to the next phase of the campaign. We will be discussing and sharing ideas about how we can reach out to our community to educate and to persuade each and every one of them to vote YES in November. We can't win this without YOU!
Please join us this Wednesday as we turn in signatures! The press is coming, so we want our numbers to be strong. RSVP here.
Please join us for our next training, which will take place on Tuesday, the 27th, in the back of El Cafetazo, a smoothie cafe in the Mission. This is a great way to get involved in the signature drive. More details here.
Hi folks. I've gotten a few messages about when we're doing the next training, and we're working on setting that up. In the meantime, if you want to volunteer, you can just join us on a shift and we'll give you a hands-on training experience.
Where are our scheduled shifts? Everywhere! We're at farmers markets, natural and organic groceries, special events, etc. Please send me a message if you want to help out and we'll find a shift that fits your schedule. You can message us here by commenting below, or send an email to LabelGMOsSF (at) gmail (dot) com.
For those of you who still haven't been trained, there's still one more opportunity to do so! Come to the Public Library Main Branch at 6:30 on Tuesday, February 21st (Stong Room, 1st floor).
I really encourage everyone to come - there's so much information to know about the initiative, getting valid signatures, and how to motivate people to sign. Please join us!
Dinner and a movie is so passé - join us for a signature gathering training and movie instead! RSVP for the training here.
The movie of the day is titled "In Organic We Trust" and is showing at The Roxie as part of the IndieFest. It looks at whether the organic label is a true solution to our broken food system.

See you there!
Concert/dance party this Thursday in the Mission, to benefit Viva La Milpa, an organization trying to save Mexican corn from becoming extinct through contamination from GMOs. Sign up here!
