EMBED THIS PETITION 

Tell Congress: We Deserve To Know. Label GMO Food!

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Congress has a choice to make. Either do the bidding of Big Ag and keep consumers in the dark about genetically modified food, or do what American consumers demand and require clear labeling of GMOs.

Do the right thing. Don’t leave us in the dark. REJECT the DARK Act. PASS the Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act and shine a light on GMOs in our food!

There are currently 15,324 signatures. NEW goal – We need 20,000 signatures!

PETITION BACKGROUND

UPDATE: We’ve won round one! In a first vote, the U.S. Senate failed to advance the DARK Act. But the lobbyists for Big Ag aren’t going away. Let’s keep up the pressure — consumers deserve to know what’s in our food. — Jeff

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote soon on what is known as the Big Ag-supported DARK Act, which would prohibit states from requiring labeling of genetically modified foods.

But the Senate has another choice, one that would put in place a national standard that requires labeling of foods containing GMOs. It’s called the Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act and it needs your support.

This is our chance to stand up to Big Ag and bring GMO labeling to all 50 states, but time is running out.

Add your name right away!
