We have under one month until the legislative deadline to get a GMO labeling bill out of committee and fortunately, thanks to your calls and emails, we’re hearing some movement inside the State House!
Great News, BUT, We need to keep the pressure on!
We have under one month until the legislative deadline to get a GMO labeling bill out of committee and fortunately, thanks to your calls and emails, we’re hearing some movement inside the State HouseEven if you’ve already contacted them, now’s a good time to follow up and to see if they’re joined our list of legislative endorsers! We need your help to grow this list and reach a critical mass of support in the State House. If they’re on there already, thank them. And if not, ask them to sign the endorsement letter, today!
Tell them you need to know what you’re eating, and that you want them to PASS GMO LABELING THIS SESSION.
(also please share this action alert on social media!)
Update: We had a very good meeting with the House Chair of the Public Health Committee, Jeffrey Sanchez (JP/Brookline) on 2/19/14. He’s been hearing lots about it from his constituents and from his peers (your reps), so GOOD WORK EVERYONE. Unfortunately, he hasn’t had the time to really dig into the issue, and doesn’t know which way he’ll vote yet. We need to make sure he and the rest of the key decision makers keep hearing about it!
Let’s thank our GMO Labeling Leaders and encourage them to stand strong!https://www.google.com/
We need the lead sponsors of GMO labeling to know they have the public support they need in order to push back against the powerful chemical manufacturers and junk food companies that want to keep us in the dark about what we’re eating. We’ve launched a “Gratitude Campaign” to thank them via email and social media. We’ve been featuring each of the 4 lead sponsors each day this week on our Facebook page. Our first “Thank You Meme” was seen by 50 K people in 24 hours! Right now we’d really like to generate a bunch of Facebook wall posts and emails for Representative Stephen DiNitale (Fitchburg/ 3rd Worcester Dist.), who we’ve heard has been vigilantly contacting the committee chairs to get some movement on GMO labeling! The 4 lead sponsors are now working together to pass the strongest GMO labeling bill possible. Let’s show our support!
