Public Hearing & Rally for Maine’s Right-to-Know GMO Bill, April 23

Action Alert from Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA):

Make a Difference! Testify on Tuesday! We have the right to know – Label GMOs!

Friends of Good Food,

Please make your voice heard on Tuesday, April 23, as MOFGA and our friends tell
Maine’s Joint Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF): We have the right to know! Label GMOs!

LD 718, Maine’s Right to Know GMO Labeling bill, will require that most foods and seed sold at retail outlets be labeled if they contain genetically modified (GM) ingredients. The bill has massive bi-partisan support from a record 123 co-sponsors.

A recent scientific poll shows 91 percent of Mainers want GMO labeling.

Please join our rally and press conference at noon on Tuesday, April 23,
at the State Capitol in Augusta. Bring positive signs and banners!

Testify at the 1 p.m. crucial Public Hearing before the legislature’s ACF Committee.

TUESDAY APRIL 23 WILL BE MAINE’S SINGLE BEST OPPORTUNITY TO CONVEY OUR SUPPORT FOR WHAT WILL BE AMERICA’S FIRST GMO LABELING LAW. COME MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Maine deserves truth-in-labeling. If you are anywhere in or near Maine, come, bring your neighbors and friends, and help us make history! See you there!
