Happy first day of the Vermont 2014 Legislative Session from us all at the Right to Know GMO Coalition!
In a little more than a week, on January 16th Vermonters from every corner of the state will be helping the Right to Know Coalition kick off the session by coming to Montpelier and standing up for their right to know. Last year we became the first state to pass a GMO labeling bill through any legislative chamber, and these next few critical months will be our chance to make this bill a law.
This year we are facing incredible opposition from corporate agriculture and the biotech industry, but if enough Vermonters are willing to talk to their Senators we have a real chance to become the first state where we see labels on GMO foods. Join us on January 16th to prove now is the time for legislators to protect the right to know what’s in our food!
Click here to learn more about the plan for the day as well as to register. We will begin the day with a 1:00 rally on the capitol steps where we will make sure that Senators get the message that the time to label GMOs is now! Then the Vermont Right to Know GMOs Coalition will host a networking and teach-in event at nearby Christ Episcopal Church. Leaders from the Campaign will be on hand to give you the latest updates on the campaign and to make sure you have the tools you need when talking with your lawmakers.
Bring colorful signs with strong messages for the rally, and your digital devices to record the day.
Hope to see you all there. Our time is now!
