Event Type Meeting
Organizer/AuthorPamm Larry

Speaker Pamm Larry will be leading the Meeting to educate us on why it is important and what we can do to take action.

Since the 1990s, we have repeatedly asked the FDA, the USDA, our legislators and the courts to label food that contain genetically modified organisms. They haven't.
It’s time for Californians to vote on labeling genetically engineered foods.

...What will happen to the future of our food if we don’t act NOW?
We need YOU to join us to make informed consumer choice the law!

This meeting is 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 invite all of your friends. I look forward to seeing you there.

Please also check out the Official Website and Facebook page for more details about the Initiative.
