IMG_4759Tomorrow Senator Roberts plans to introduce a bill in the Senate Agricultural Committee that is an outrageous attempt to preempt states’ rights to label GMOs and keep us in the DARK about what we are eating forever.  Please call your Senators TODAY at 202-224-3121 and urge them to speak with their colleagues on the Senate Agricultural Committee. Please call your Senators and state the following: “I am calling to voice my strong opposition to the bill being introduced by Senator Roberts in the Agricultural Committee that would preempt states from labeling GMOs and would keep me in the DARK about the food I am eating.  Please speak to your colleagues on the Senate Agricultural Committee and urge them to oppose Senator Roberts’ bill.” 

Senator Roberts is not acting in the interests of the American people who elected him to office, instead, he is doing the bidding for the industry.  We can not allow Senator Roberts to get away with this blatant attempt to put industry interests above our personal rights.  The only way to stop Roberts’ bill is to ensure that our Senators will stand in strong opposition and let their position be known to the Senate Agricultural Committee.  Colleague to colleague lobbying is critically important and so we need to ask our Senators to speak with the members of the Senate Agricultural Committee today.

The simple solution is clear and conspicuous, mandatory on-package GMO labeling. Every other proposal we’ve seen so far makes consumers play “hide and seek” to find the information they want. What could be simpler than four non-judgmental words on a label? Produced with Genetic Engineering.  Our movement to label GMOs is democracy in action.  Democracy will prevail, as long as we use our voices and hold our elected officials accountable to us.  This certainly is not easy work, but it is necessary for the future of our children and our planet.  

Thank you for taking action today!  #LabelGMOs #4simplewords #StopDARK
