Label GMOs 2012
Organic Consumers' best opportunity for a strategic victory against Monsanto in 2012 is the California Ballot Initiative for mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.
We're at a crucial moment in the campaign. OCA's lobbying partner, the Organic Consumers Fund, needs to raise at least $50,000 in the next 30 days to carry out public education and to help our coalition partners recruit, train, and deploy several thousand volunteer petition gatherers. In early January our volunteer petition gatherers will fan out across California and gather the signatures of 800,000 registered voters.
A win in California, a state that commands 10% of the retail grocery market nationwide, would be a crippling blow to the sale and production of GMO crops across the country and worldwide.
