Turning Green, a student lead non-profit dedicated to sustainability education and inspiring conscious lifestyle transitions, has created a call to action. It's a call to action to our peers, communities and policy makers.
“Don’t mind the nine out of 10 Americans who support GM food labeling—forget them! ... Let’s protect Big Food and biotechnology corporations by not calling [Congress],” Danielle Schoen, a Skidmore College junior, sarcastically states in the video.
The time to speak up is now.
Call your representative today and share these key points.
For calls, here is a sample script:
“Hi, my name is [NAME]. I am from [District] and I am one of the 9 out of 10 Americans who support GMO labeling. I am calling to ask you to oppose H.R. 1599. This will take away states and local rights to label and regulate genetically engineered crops. It will harm family farmers and it will undermine local rights of consumers to know what is in our food. Please protect farmers, states rights and my right to know and OPPOSE H.R. 1599. Thank you.”
We need you to pick up the phone right now. Click here to be automatically connected to your representative and urge him or her to support GMO labeling and vote "no" on H.R. 1599, the DARK Act.
