Upcoming SoCal Millions Against Monsanto Events



Hello SoCal anti-GMO activists,


As part of OCA's Millions Against Monsanto Truth-in-Labeling Campaign we are encouraging activists in our network to plan their own campaign events with others in their area. This email is to inform you that there is an upcoming event near you, organized by grassroots organizers who care about the GE-labeling issue as much as you do.

You may have heard that California is poised to be the first state with mandatory GMO labeling laws through the 2012 CA Ballot Initiative process.   Polls show that we have the support to get this initiative on the ballot and voted in - over 70% of those polled supported mandatory labeling - but Monsanto and their minions have billions of dollars invested in GMOs and millions of dollars they are willing to spend to defeat this initiative.


These meetings are for activists to come together to learn about the initiative, how we suggest being activists in your community and organizing into a new cohesive group.    Please come ready to "roll your sleeves up" and get to work on what I'm sure will be a historic ballot measure.  

 
Go to GMO Free Southern California for all events in SoCal! 


Also, there are additional meetings planned for the future, so be on the look out for your area but if you don't see your city listed please contact Stacey Hall at gmofreesocal@gmail.com to coordinate an event near you.
