Learn More about GMO Labeling Efforts in California

Aug 24, 2011 by

Just received the following email:

As part of OCA’s Millions Against Monsanto Truth-in-Labeling Campaign we are encouraging activists in our network to plan their own campaign event with others in their area. This email is to inform you that there are upcoming events near you, organized by grassroots organizers who care about the GE-labeling issue as much as you do.

Food Activist Pamm Larry, who is spearheading the effort to get GMO Labeling on the California Ballot in 2012 (labelGMOs.org), is speaking at a series of informational events in your area. The goal is to pass a voter initiative on the November 2012 ballot that would require all foods containing GMOs to be labeled.These meetings are for activists to come together to learn about the initiative, how we suggest being activists in your community and organizing into a new cohesive group. We will be asking for folks to think about committees they want to be on and assign a point person.

Please come ready to “roll your sleeves up” and get to work on what is
sure to be a historic ballot measure.
