Help convince MoveOn that their supporters should tell the FDA to label genetically engineered foods!
With just a few clicks, you could help promote this campaign to hundreds of thousands of concerned consumers.
MoveOn.org – the powerful grassroots organization with over five million members – might promote the effort to get the FDA to label GMOs to their supporters…but only if we show MoveOn that people care about how their food is produced!
Here’s the deal: MoveOn has a sister site called SignOn.org where anyone can create a petition. If enough people sign the petition, they’ll promote it to MoveOn.org members.
Last week, to leverage this amazing opportunity, Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, and Gary Hirshberg, Chairman of Stonyfield Farm, created a page on SignOn.org where you can submit comments to the FDA. Now we need your help proving to MoveOn that this is a popular petition that people really care about.
IMPORTANT: A big part of how MoveOn will judge the popularity of the petition will be to look at how many friends and family were sent the petition. That means we really need you not only to sign the SignOn petition – but to email it to everyone you know, post it on Facebook, and tweet about it. You’ll see all of these options once you take the action.
We’ve got no time to lose. At any point, the FDA may approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. It’s engineered to produce growth hormones year-round to make the fish grow at twice its natural rate! But without labels, we don’t have the ability to decide what’s best for our families.
More than 40 countries require genetically engineered foods to be labeled. Polls show that over 90% of Americans support it too. If we can harness the power of MoveOn with people like you – concerned parents, consumers, farmers, and more – we’ll really show the FDA that the American public wants mandated labeling of genetically engineered foods!
Thank you for all of your support.
