How can you help? The labeling of genetically engineered products will not happen without YOUR help. Here is what you can do:
We need each and every one of you to act today! Please write and call your legislators today to tell them we deserve the right to know what is in our food so we can make our own informed choices. Click HERE to find out who your legislators are and to retrieve their contact information. Please write and call both your senator and representative. Your letters do not need to be long. Simply provide them with the following information:
(1) I live in XXX town and am your constituent.
(2) I am writing because I want you to support the GMO labeling bills HB 6519 – An Act Concerning the Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods and HB 6527 – An Act Concerning the Labeling of Genetically Engineered Baby Food and Formula.
(3) I care about GMO labeling because . . . (i.e. I want the right to know what is in my food so I can make my own choices about what to feed my family, I want the right to know because I don’t want to support agriculture that is dependent on chemicals, I want the right to know because GMOs have never been proven safe by our government and there are numerous studies that link GMOs with infertility, gastrointestinal disease, and cancer)
(4) Urge your legislator to contact the leadership in their caucus and tell them to support GMO labeling.
