Join TransitionSF in learning about the benefits of GMO Labeling & how we can take action!

What are genetically engineered foods, and why should they be labeled? Find out at the February 27th TransitionSF meeting, where Frank Plughoff and Liz Kroboth, San Francisco coordinators for the Committee for the Right to Know, will be presenting.

The Committee for the Right to Know is a grassroots coalition of consumer, public health, environmental organizations, and food companies in California that is working to put an initiative on the 2012 California ballot requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods (also known as GE foods, or GMOs). Prompted by growing concerns about the impacts that genetically engineered foods may have on human health and the environment, the demand for labeling from consumers, and the lack of response from lawmakers, this coalition is taking the question of labeling to the people.
