Do we have to go to local group to find the signature ballots to sign? It would be so much easier if we could sign up at the website. Is that possible? Many of us sign petitions at websites regularly and wonder why it hasn't been set up here yet.

If you go to the home page: http://www.labelgmos.org it explains why online signatures cannot be gathered and where to go to sign the petition.
For your convenience, see below and I hope this helps:
Where Can I sign?
Because this is a California Ballot Initiativate, we need in-person, physical signatures. We cannot gather online and have unti April 22nd to gather 800,000 signatures to get this on the 2012 California Ballot.
To find a place to sign in your area visit:
Events Page - check if your community leaders have events up.
Local Groups Page - find your local group.
Contact Us - Please let us know where you are located and we will direct you.
Seek out signature gatherers - Both Volunteers and Professional Signature Gatherers can be found in high-traffic stores like Walmart, local grocery stores and co-ops, farmers markets, and major events.
We must stop Monsanto from stealing our food supply and poisoning all of our seeds. Speak out against Monsanto and GMO products as cancer causing. Drive Monsanto out of the USA. All states must do as California and make them put all ingredients on food labels.
Apparell sales would not only help with financial support for the movement this would help to spread the word one shirt, hoodie,or mug at a time. I love apparel that does more than look well. It's a great conversational piece that's an ice breaker to those who don't know GMO exists. I would love to be one of the first to wear a LabelGMOs hoodie
We are concerned about labeling but we also need more awareness of health and life threating issues that GMO causes. It's getting worse and we all should start to integrate our lifestyle around real organic, home gardens, and really eating live foods. Seed saving from plants we know from our back yard farms or friends that was grown before 1996! And keep our America strong the real patriotic, real farmers way!
I want to know if I can tske a sign up sheet to my church,and if so then where and how can I obtain it
I would like a list of leaders or like to chat with leader in my county (S.B.) so that we may share helpfull ideals on organizing our group and places that we can cover in our county to collect signatures. Also matching people up with others so they can do the two-person signature gathering method.
Sell bumper stickers with "LabelGMOs.org" on them. T-shirts with catch phrases such as "GMO's are NOT the way to go" or "I like my seeds au naturel" or " Real men like real seeds" or "Real women like real seeds". The sky is the limit!
Would be great to have an automated email to congress, local and state gov insisting that all GMO product is labled as such!
I think it would be helpful to assign goals to people - in terms of numbers of signatures to gather, or numbers of signatures per district or group.
I also really like how interactive this site is!!
Also focus on getting GMOs labeling inforced at COUNTY levels.
Chances are that we'd have much bigger chances to get this done at the lower levels while working our way up.
Washington State is working on getting a bill passed forcing the Labeling of GMOs through their Congress and Senate.
I am a member of Occupella, a group that leads singing at demonstrations. We have an anti-GMO song and other relevant songs. Contact me if you'd like music at your demo or meeting. nancy at sisterschoice.com
I am a jeans and T farmer mom who will wear it every time I leave the farm with my daughter just to make other parents THINK! :-)
Many of those who do not want to sign tend to confuse the differences in hybridization, domestication, Genetic Engineering (GE). When a horse and donkey is cross bread there is a mule and the mule goes no more. With GE genetic deformity that can keep breading because it is in the genes. Check out the differences. some sites are:
There is much fmore info. Check it out.
NationBuilder is terrific, but how can I talk to a human by phone about this?
Hi, Please contact me. Sharon 949 653 1097
Also Can Label GMO's have their own FB page?
Thank you very much for your HARD work,
You need a simple side bar option to see what upcoming events we've already RSVP'd for.
