Thank you to everyone who signed our petition to President-Elect Joe Biden asking him not to put former Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) in charge of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Heitkamp will not be Agriculture Secretary. Unfortunately, Biden has chosen the only person who could be any worse: Tom Vilsack, Secretary in the Obama-Biden Administration (2009-2017).
If you've followed our Millions Against Monsanto campaign since then, or if you joined the movement through the March Against Monsanto, you know him as Mr. Monsanto, the guy who put more GMOs into our food supply—along with all the pesticides those GMOs were engineered to resist—than anyone on Earth.
Vilsack's misdeeds are too numerous to list in one action alert, so we'll be bringing you a series of articles. Our first installment lists Vilsack's GMOs, from Roundup Ready sugar beets to lab "meat"—16 in all!
