Join us to LOBBY THE SENATE, Friday October 16. Speak to your representatives in Washington to Demand GMO Labeling

We know that money is no object when corporations spend to get what they want; the problem is that the citizens of America have not taken an adequate stand for their interests on Capitol Hill.  There have been marches and demonstrations in the streets of our nation’s Capital, while the doors to our U.S. Representatives have remained open.  ‘We the People’ have not gone in yet.  It’s time we do.  NON-GMO-Project-Verified-rev
