Faith Leaders For The Win! Labeling is a Moral Issue

aa-deuteronomy.jpgReligious and faith-based groups across California, including the Presbyterian Church, United Methodist Church and California Council of Churches, are urging people to vote Yes on Proposition 37, the California ballot measure to label genetically engineered foods.

"In some circles, GMO means 'God Moves Over,'" wrote Dana Hull in the San Jose Mercury News. Genetically engineered food clashes with various religious beliefs, ranging from keeping kosher, to maintaining a healthy food supply, to protecting God’s creations.

Food Industry Leaders For The Win: Yes on 37!

Leading food manufacturers and retailers are speaking out to set the record straight about Proposition 37. These business leaders say Prop 37 is common sense and will give us the right to know what's in our food. Contrary to the claims of the opposition, they say Prop 37 will not raise costs or burden businesses. 

whole-foods-prop37-thumb.jpg"As a business person, I don't see any evidence of additional costs in our food system. I believe strongly that this will not add to our distribution costs."  - Michael Funk, Chair, UNFI

"Only in America can you consume GMOs without knowing it. In Europe, food costs have not gone up as a result (of GMO labeling)." 
- Andy Berliner, Co-founder and CEO, Amy's Kitchen

"We believe that all consumers have a right to know where their food comes from." 
- David Lannon, EVP, Operations, Whole Foods Market

$2 Million More to Change the Food System

Dear Supporters,

DonateToR2K.pngJust 13 days left to an unprecedented opportunity to bring fairness to our food system. In two weeks, California voters will decide if we have the right to know if our food is genetically engineered. After two decades of thwarted efforts to bring labeling and transparency to our food system, the voters will finally get our say. 

Please help us raise $2 million quickly so we can pass the nation’s first mandatory GMO labeling law on November 6. 

We have come so far. Our huge grassroots movement has worked so hard to get us to this point. We have the support of so many major health, faith, labor, environmental and consumer groups. Now we need YOU to get us over the finish line first.
