Hello California Activists!
Want to help get GMOs labeled across the entire state of California? We will need everyone's help to gather the required signatures to get it on the ballot for Nov 2012. Signature gathering will begin soon, but first those who want to volunteer to gather signatures need to meet for an important training workshop. Even if you have collected signatures before, we have specific, important information to share with you.
We will be showing The Future of Food and will be presenting a few charts afterwards to update the attendees on current USDA crop adoption rates and cross pollination distances in order to paint a picture of the (dim) prospects for the food we evolved eating (known today as "organic") actually being available to any of us in 5 years unless we take action now. We will train any folks at this event who want to be trained as signature gatherers immediately following the movie. If you haven't seen this movie yet and are looking to educate yourself further about GMOs and labeling, this will be a great event to attend, and will likely be one of our last movie showings.
Socialize & get to know other volunteer signature gatherers! Please share and bring a friend! Together we will finally give Californians what we all deserve: the opportunity to know what's in our food.
Let's make sure that next November, we win the right to know what we're eating!
