Welcome to the Label GMO 2012 Campaign!

How to get started!

 

1.  Learn More - visit the main website here


2.  SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD! 

Here is the Transition California Community embed link code to be used for emailing friends, posting on any forums/blogs/websites, sharing on other networks, and banners/images. 

 

http://www.labelgmos.org/?recruiter_id=3401

Using this code will enable tracking of Transition California Community's impact and efforts during this campaign.


3.  Write a list of people and places you can collect signatures.  If every TCA member got just 10 signatures that would be 15,000 signatures alone.  Our goal is for every member to collect 100 signatures - that would be 150,000!


Much of the World Already Requires Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods

50 countries with over 40% of the world’s population already label genetically engineered foods, including the entire European Union. Even China labels genetically engineered foods. California should lead on this important issue. What do these countries know that we don't?

Hello Friends,

 

I wanted to write a personal note to all of you out there who care about the California GMO Labeling Initiative.  

 

Thanks to those who have helped this effort already...you've done an amazing job! We have been gathering signatures for a few weeks now, are on track and can get this done, but we need all of you. 

 

Like any grassroots effort, we need thousands more of us out there. I'm not kidding when I say that every one of us is needed to battle this huge Goliath. And, folks...they have already started with their misinformation against this campaign.

 

They are mobilizing and getting out there in opposition.  

 

We have what many are calling the BEST opportunity to get GMO labeling passed here in California! The forces that don't want us to know the truth of what's in our food cannot beat us if we unite as one and work together to make this initiative pass. Together we will make this happen.

 

PLEASE...if you've not yet gathered any signatures to ensure your right to know: contact me directly at plarry@labelgmos.org 

  

Please include in the subject THE NAME OF YOUR CITY IN CALIFORNIA so I can get you in touch with your local leader who will pair you with someone who is trained to get you going.  

 

I've personally gotten almost 1000 signatures already. I tell you that because I don't ask anything of anyone that I am not willing to do. 

 

EVERY volunteer signature helps.  

 

We are done April 22.  We have six more weeks to gather signatures.  Please join us because it's through our united effort that we will get this on the ballot now and won in November.

 

Thanks!

 

Pamm Larry

Statement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

by Arthur Stamoulis, Executive Director, Citizens Trade Campaign

 

This morning, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman, along with other trade ministers from throughout the Pacific Rim, announced a deal on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — a trade and investment pact that would set rules governing approximately forty percent of the global economy.  Citizens Trade Campaign’s executive director Arthur Stamoulis released the following statement in response:

 

 

Where Does Councilman Cedillo Really Stand On The GMO Issue?

Grassroots food justice advocates for clear and concise labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and protection of native seeds from genetic contamination, are calling out Councilmember Gil Cedillo. The organizations question Cedillo’s credentials to promote himself as an advocate of non-GMO corn.

Update On The TPA Vote, June 12, 2015

On Friday, June 12, the House had three votes on the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) which we've been calling "Fast Track".  The results in the news are a bit confusing. I'll cover the two important ones for us here.

The grassroots group to recall Walker just turned in 1.8 million signatures and all done by volunteers. Now that is grassroots gone wild. O.k. I am game. Anybody up to a friendly little competition to see who gets to 100 first?
