Yes on 37 GMO Labeling Heroes and Zeroes


Thank those Heroes who are Standing Up for Your Right to Know on Prop 37!

Right now a major battle for the future of our food and our democracy is playing out in California. At this very moment, everyday Californians are fighting to help pass Prop 37 to label genetically engineered foods. In the past 18 months, a powerful grassroots movement of mothers, grandmothers, farmers, activists and small companies have stood up to the most powerful multinational pesticide and biotech companies on the planet.

It hasn't been easy. It's taken a lot of hard work and taken significant resources, but already the California Right to Know campaign has raised more than $5 million dollars! This is a drop in the bucket compared to the chemical and junk food companies who have raised over $36 million dollars, but we wanted to take a moment to thank those small businesses and organizations who are leading the fight for GMO labeling in California.

The Heroes of Prop 37!

For many of these family-owned organic companies like Nature's Path, Dr. Bronner's, Lundberg Family Farms and Organic Valley, the amount given represents a significant portion of their annual earnings. They have stepped up to the plate and stood beside their customers and this grassroots movement to Label GMOs.

At Food Democracy Now! we want to give you the opportunity to thank these companies who have been generous and resolute in standing up for your Right to Know when no one else would. If it wasn't for these companies listed on the info graphic we've created below, Prop 37 would not be where it is today - close to a victory on Nov. 6th!
 
We think it's important to recognize these companies for helping promote the values of democracy and open, honest and transparent labeling here in the U.S. Food Democracy Now! would like to encourage you to support them by buying their products when shopping for you and your family at the grocery store. These companies have our back!

The Zeroes of Prop 37

Despite already labeling GMOs in 61 other countries around the world, the coalition of chemical, junk food and biotech companies listed above are flooding the airwaves in California with lies to mislead voters about Yes on 37, the simple ballot measure to label genetically engineered foods.

Monsanto has already funneled $7.1 million dollars to defeat California’s Prop 37 to label genetically engineered foods. Monsanto has only one goal – denying you the Right to Know what’s in your food - and they're willing to tell any lie to get it done.

Already, Monsanto, DuPont, Coke, Pepsi and Nestle's deceptive and misleading ads are running on the air in California. The problem is, the opposition knows that lying and deception works. After all, they did it for decades, whether it was covering up the harm to human health with cigarettes, Agent Orange or DDT.

With your help we can expose their lies to California voters. 

 

Please make sure to print out the infographic and share with your friends to remind them who to support when they buy food at the local grocery store and which companies to avoid.

Please join us in defeating this biotech Goliath and make GMO labeling a reality with me today. Time is running short - only 16 days left until the election.

Chip in today to help defeat Monsanto’s bid to silence GMO labeling in California and the U.S. - It's time to fight back!
