Yes on 522: The People's Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act
Grassroots activists in Washington State gathered over 350,000 signatures to get I-522, the People's Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act on the Nov. 2013 ballot. Initial polling shows that Washington state voters will likely pass this Ballot Initiative, no matter how much money the biotech industry and large food corporations put into an anti-labeling campaign.
I-522 already has strong support from Washington farmers, ranchers, and dairies, both organic and conventional, who are up in arms about the economic and environmental threats posed by genetically engineered wheat, apples, and alfalfa. Plus, Washington is far smaller than California in terms of population and registered voters and boasts a powerful network of co-ops, independent natural food stores, and grassroots organizations who are already fully on board with the campaign.
This fall, it's up to us to decide. Let's vote for the right to know what's in our food. Yes on 522!
