ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

URGENT CALL TO ACTION: Stop the DARK Act!

The Organic Consumers Association is asking our supporters to organize rallies at the district offices of Congress members, asking lawmakers to reject the DARK Act (HR 1599), a bill that would strip states of the right to pass GMO labeling laws.

What is the DARK Act?

In February 2015, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) reintroduced HR 1599, a bill intended to strip states of their right to pass GMO labeling laws. The bill is officially called the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act.” But we call it the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act because it would stop GMO labeling laws in their tracks.

What can you do to stop the DARK Act?

Members of Congress need to hear from you. One of the best ways to get their attention is to hold a rally outside their home offices. Click here to get started!
