Dear Friends and Supporters,
You’ve read the list of ingredients. You think you know what’s in that box of cereal you just bought.
But you don’t. Whether it’s a box of cereal or an ear of corn, whether you’re eating it yourself, or feeding it to your children, you don’t have all the facts. You don’t know the whole story.
Because Monsanto, Dow, General Mills and Kellogg’s don’t want you to know.
But right now, you have a chance to change that, with your donation today to the YES on 37 campaign, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.
Please help us raise $500,000 by Wednesday, September 12, so we can pass the nation’s first mandatory GMO labeling law on November 6.
National and California state polls couldn’t be any more clear: The majority of people want GMOs labeled. They want the right to know, so they will have the freedom to choose. In nearly 50 other countries – including Russia, China and Japan – consumers have that choice, thanks to mandatory GMO labeling laws.
You can have the right to know, too. But only if we win this historic campaign in November.
We’re one week into our multi-partner fundraising campaign to raise $500,000 by September 12. But we are still far short of our goal.
Please pitch in today, so we can win this historic citizens’ initiative that would give you the right to know what’s in your food.
Past efforts to pass GMO labeling laws have failed. But this time it’s different. This time, the citizens have initiated this law – powerful corporations won’t be able to lobby politicians to kill it. Of course, that hasn’t stopped the opposition from ponying up millions for an anti-labeling propaganda campaign.
Big Food, represented by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, along with the biotech industry - Monsanto, BASF, Bayer, Dow, DuPont and Syngenta – are filling their war chests, buying up TV ad space, doing what they do best: Trying to scare you into thinking that somehow, the right to know what’s in your food isn’t in your best interest.
We can’t outraise the corporations that are making huge profits on foods they won’t label. But with public support, truth – and you – on our side, we can run a smart, effective campaign to spread the word and get out the vote. And win in November.
Help us counter the deceptive campaign that powerful chemical and agricultural biotechnology corporations are running to keep you from knowing what’s in your food.
Please make your donation today, either by check or using our secure online donation system.
You have the right to know what’s in your food. It doesn’t get any more basic than that.
Gary, Pamm, Stacy
and all of us here at Yes on 37!
P.S. Time is running short. Early voting in California begins October 9. Your donation of $10, $37, $100, or whatever you can afford today, will help us get the word out to every voter in California that if they want the right to know what’s in their food, we have to win in November.
