Together Let’s Demand GMO Labeling Now!
California is leading the way to require labeling that will give parents and consumers a choice about what we feed our kids and ourselves. We have a right to know!
GMO-Free Santa Cruz, along with many other groups throughout the State of California are actively working to spread awareness of GMOs and our right to know if they are in our food.
If you believe that you have a right to know what is in your food, and you would like to support the 2012 California mandatory GMO labeling initiative, then join the March. Polls consistently show that a large margin of the majority of citizens in the US want GMOs labeled (72-96%, depending on the poll). It's time for this to be law. Please visit http://www.labelgmos.org and get involved in the future of your food.
