Tell Connecticut to Label GMOs!

Tell Connecticut: "I support GMO labeling!"

Join us - Make GMO labeling the law in Connecticut!

Tell Connecticut - I want GMO labeling now!

There's only a few weeks left in the legislative session in Hartford and we need your help this week to make sure a GMO labeling bill passes this year!

For the second year in a row, leaders in Connecticut have helped lead the way, building a powerful grassroots movement to get reasonable and common sense labeling of genetically engineered foods. Unfortunately, Monsanto and the biotech industry have been in Hartford lobbying everyday to defeat your right to know what's in your food and the food you feed your children.

As the final weeks of the 2013 legislative session wind down, your elected officials need to hear from you today!

There are two important bills on GMO labeling being considered in the Connecticut state capitol and your elected officials need to hear from you today!

Ask your legislators to support HB 6519 to label GMOs and HB 6527 to label baby food and infant formula that contains genetically engineered ingredients.

H.B. No. 6519, An Act Concerning the Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food, and H.B. No. 6527, a bill to label baby food and infant formula that contain GMOs were introduced in the Connecticut legislature earlier this winter.

Right now we need your help to make sure these bills pass over the objections of the biotech industry.                        

Already citizens in 64 other countries enjoy the basic right of knowing if their food has been genetically engineered in a laboratory. But for the past 20 years Americans have been denied this democratic right because of powerful special interests of Big Food, the biotech industry and agribusiness lobbyists.

You can help change that today! For years, activists across Connecticut have been working hard to introduce reasonable legislation that would give this basic information to consumers about their food.

If passed, Connecticut would become the first state in the U.S. to require mandatory labeling of GMOs in our food. The issue of labeling has never been more important!

Passing GMO labeling in Connecticut is urgent.

Right now 13 new GMO crops are awaiting approval at the USDA, including Monsanto’s 2,4-D Agent Orange corn and the “botox” GMO apple.

At the same time, the FDA is getting ready to approve genetically engineered salmon. If approved, Aquabounty’s GMO salmon would be the first genetically engineered animal allowed on the market and it would appear on your plates unlabeled! Without a bill on GMO labeling, you will continue to be left in the dark as you try to feed yourself and your family.

Besides eating organic food, the only way to guarantee that you’re not eating GMOs or feeding your family genetically engineered foods is to make sure they’re properly labeled. Join us today to gain that right for you, your family and everyone in Connecticut.

Tell your friends and elected officials that you have a Right to Know - pass a GMO labeling bill and help Connecticut lead the way! Every voice counts!

Currently 37 states are working to pass GMO labeling legislation in 2013. Connecticut is one of those states and with your help, we can make history.

Remember, democracy is like a muscle... either use or lose it!

Thanks for participating in food democracy,

Dave, Lisa and the Food Democracy Now! team
