? About signing the petition

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.

SIGNATURE FORM

Nowhere on your site does it say how to send in a signature.  I have to assume that collecting signatures is not the point of this site.  But, why not?  Very fishy!

Creat an online store with LabelGMOs.org merchandise to raise funds

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!

This site is hard

I can't access the calendar for my area even though I have an account so can't see where/when the events in SF take place. Any help with that please? My suggestion is that the volunteer area in the site and the calendar of events for gathering signatures should be the main principal, VISIBLE and easily accessible use of the site. I think recruiting volunteers and making the process of VOLUNTEERING EASY is the most important and practical use of the site at this moment. If people can't see the shifts or sign for them is kind of discouraging.  Also, would it make sense to have a place where we can post the amount of signatures gathered so that we can actually have an estimate of the progress of this?  It could be encouraging. Thanks.

Working in Spanish speaking and American Indian Communities

I have experience doing community organizing in the Los Angeles area with both of these populations and would like to get these communities invested in the initiative. I look forward hearing from the campaign soon.

Start a petition on Change.org

Start a petition on Change.org just to send a message to the American Government and to the world! People outside the USA who want to sign the petition against GMOs cannot sign the Californian act but we still want to make a stand against it! There are several petitions against GMOs on Change.org but I think one petition from the labelGMOs organisation would be more effective. So please make a petition 'Label GMOs'. I will be the first to sign!

personalizing volunteers

It may help the movement to create a spot on the website where people can locate their volunteer section by county or zip code. I do not see a schedule for my section to sign up for shifts. Thank you.

SIgnupGenius.com now allows branding of volunteer signup pages

Add LableGMOs.org Logo or Photo to Your Sign Up!

Right-click on the Label GMOs logo > Save As (somewhere on your desktop) > Create your sign up page to set up slots for signature gathering volunteers and when prompted during signup creation point to that logo for upload onto the page to better identify it for volunteers.

Go Local! Focus on low hanging fruits

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.

Goal Setting

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!!

Number of signatures attained

Have you considered posting on your website the number of signatures you have attained so that people can keep track of the progress?

If possible, please respond.

Thanks for all the great work you are doing! :)

Online petition!

 Please start an online petition. We need to get the entire online community involved. Also, if there is a way for your website to make it easier for individuals to contact their statesmen/representative and inform them about our concerns regarding this matter, I think it would greatly help spread our opinions to the people that work for us with legislation.

Weston A. Price Foundation

I am a member and chapter leader of the Weston A. Price Foundation.  The issue of GMOs is a hot button topic for us.  We have over 400 chapters in our network.  CA alone has probably 50 chapters.  Each of those has potentially hundreds of members. Have you considered tapping into those chapters for campaign exposure?  You can find the contacts at: http://www.westonaprice.org/local-chapters/find-a-local-chapter

I would even encourage you to talk to the Foundation leaders about getting this campaign matter out to all the chapters.  Hopefully this leadership of yours will spark other states to follow suit in future elections.

We are a dynamic group and need to be challenged to fight along side you.

Coming together with ideals

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.
