Multiple Locations - Multiple Cities
On Wednesday May 2, we will be turning in enough signatures to put the California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative on the ballot! This massive achievement represents the work of thousands of volunteers who are demanding the right to know what's in the food we eat and feed our families.
We’ll unveil the number of signatures and hear from local leaders, farmers, concerned moms, sustainable businesses and supporters who are among the 90% of Californians who want to know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients. We’ll wheel the petitions into county offices in baby carriages to represent the importance of this issue to children and future generations.
Events will take place in four cities. All events begin promptly at 11 a.m.; please arrive in advance.
