#StopTheDARKAct

There is currently a bill on its way to congress that would prevent GMO-labeling and denies consumers the right to thoroughly know what they are purchasing and eating, three meals a day. “H.R. 1599, dubbed the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” Act or DARK Act by opponents, would block state laws requiring GMO labeling. Three states have passed such laws and 17 considered similar laws in 2015. The DARK would also rob states of the ability to prevent food companies from claiming that GMO foods are “natural.”” 

The time is now to speak up.

Call your representative today + 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!
