Our Mission Statement
"To inform the public about genetically engineered foods, their potential risks to health, the environment, and the integrity of the food supply for future generations. To advocate for transparency in the food supply through clear and concise labeling of genetically modified organisms. We also support local food sovereignty efforts"
Say “No” to HR 1599
H.R. 1599, also known as the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right-to-Know Act) is designed to destroy the GMO labeling movement.
Rep. Mike Pompeo ( Republican- Kansas) and his friends from the Bio Tech industry have deceitfully designed and named the bill the “Safe and Accurate Food labeling Act of 2015.”
HR 1599 Preempts any state and local labeling requirements with respect to bioengineered food, does not mandate labels nationally, only solidifies the current policy of voluntary labeling and allows for GMOs to be labeled "natural".
Say “Yes” to HR 913 - The Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act
An alternative to the "DARK Act” ( HR 1599 ) is Peter DeFazio’s ( Democrat - Oregon) HR 913, the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act
HR 913- Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act - Amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to deem misbranded any food that has been genetically engineered or contains one or more genetically engineered ingredients, unless such information is clearly disclosed.
Ask your representative to support HR 913 the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, “ Not ” HR 1599, also known as the DARK Act.

When you call for labeling, tell them NO FAST TRACK on the TPP!!
From Flush the TPP http://www.flushthetpp.org/
This year's attempt to Fast Track unjust trade agreements is around the corner. We've got just a couple weeks to make our voices heard over the promises of multinational corporations, and starting Feb. 16th, people in key districts will ring out the call for members of Congress to commit to voting NO.
Check out our action map to join one of the 18 events happening across the country next week. If there isn't anything in your area, make plans to hold your own emergency rally, call-in, letter drop-off, flyering session, or other event today!
From people's forums to two-state bus tours, communities throughout the U.S. are coming out strong to stop the latest round of Fast Track legislation. It's now or never in this critical moment for trade justice, and we know our action can make all the difference.
With thanks for all you do,
