It's been only nine days since Prop 37 went down in California, buried under a heap of lies and trickery that were bankrolled to the tune of $46 million by the largest pesticide and junk food manufacturers in the world.
Yet far from sounding the death knell for GMO labeling, our narrow loss has fired up our Movement like never before.
We have a lot of work to do in the coming months to support the GMO labeling ballot initiative in Washington State (I-522), and to reintroduce legislation in Vermont, Connecticut, and dozens of other states.
Dirty tricks and dirty money knocked us down in Round One, but the battle has just begun.
As momentum builds, we need you, our growing army of Organic Consumer financial contributors to step up to the plate and help fund this movement. We are a grassroots movement, fighting powerful corporations with deep pockets. It up to us to lead the way by putting our money where our mouths are.
Thanks to you - thousands of you - the OCA and OCF were able to contribute more than $1.4 million to the Prop 37 campaign. Though we may have narrowly lost Round One, your money and volunteer energy was not wasted. It helped us win over more than 5 million Californians who are now ready to help us take this struggle to the next battlegrounds in Washington state and Vermont.
We can move forward to an organic, just, and sustainable future, but we need your help. Please make a donation today so we can keep the GMO labeling story alive in the media, and keep the attention and support of the millions of people who are new to this fight.
