We're getting down to the wire. In less than two weeks, Californians will decide whether people should have the right to know if their food contains GMOs - or whether corporations should retain the right to keep that information secret.
The opposition - pesticide and junk food manufacturers - is spending more than $40 million to sink Prop 37, the California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative. Monsanto, Pepsi, Dow, DuPont, Kelloggs and the rest are buying more than $1 million a day on TV ads alone.
The ads are having an impact. But we can recover - and win - if we can just reach enough voters in the next two weeks with the truth about GMOs, the truth about the opposition's campaign of lies, and the importance of voting Yes on 37.
We need your help. Can you spare an hour . . . or two . . . or more . . . to distribute leaflets at your local grocery store? Or call voters and remind them to get out and vote?
We desperately need people on the ground. If you can help, please contact your local leader for instructions on how to obtain leaflets, and where in your local area volunteers are most needed. http://www.carighttoknow.org/leader_directory
We also need people in California and all across the country to join our phone bank. Sign up here, and you'll receive all the instructions you need, including a script, what numbers to call and when. http://www.carighttoknow.org/phone_bank You can sign up for one shift - or many shifts. It won't cost you a dime, all you need is a phone, a computer and an internet connection.
Prop 37 has been a grassroots movement against giant corporations, a David vs Goliath fight, right from the start. We knew the opposition would spend tens of millions to try to defeat our right to know.
Don't let Big Money defeat our right to know. If you haven't already, please join the greatest food fight of our time by volunteering today. Thank you!

Yes on 37! We can do this!
