Millions Against Monsanto Call to Action
This World Food Day, people all around the country are getting out to bring 1,000,000 people into the Millions Against Monsanto campaign for labels on genetically engineered foods.
On October 16, 2011, we'll join together at community gardens, farmers markets, grocery stores, non-GMO potlucks, film screenings and Right2Know rallies to educate our communities about the dangers of Monsanto's seeds and pesticides and to demonstrate how much better organic, GMO-free eating can be.
Choose your state and join local Millions Against Monsanto groups to get involved in planning World Food Day events
Contact Millions Against Monsanto campaign staff to get started with a World Food Day event in your community. Make sure to let us know where you'll be on World Food Day.
We need volunteers willing to host organic, non-GMO potlucks to bring activists together to plan for World Food Day. If you have a venue where you can host a public potluck, please let us know, so we can invite Organic Consumers Association activists in your area and get you the resources you need to make your World Food Day planning potluck a success.
