Hello Anti-GMO Activists,
This email is to inform you that there is an upcoming event near you, organized by grassroots organizers who care about the GE-labeling issue as much as you do.
You may have heard that California is poised to be the first state with mandatory GMO labeling laws through the 2012 CA Ballot Initiative process. Polls show that we have the support to get this initiative on the ballot and voted in - over 70% of those polled supported mandatory labeling - but Monsanto and their minions have billions of dollars invested in GMOs and millions of dollars they are willing to spend to defeat this initiative.
These meetings are 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. Please come ready to "roll your sleeves up" and get to work on what we are sure will be a historic ballot measure.
Also, there are additional meetings planned for the future, but if you don't see your city listed please contact Pamm Larry to coordinate an event near you.
