Tell the Senate: Reject the DARK Act!

Tell Congress: Reject the new DARK Act!The anti-GMO labeling bill, the DARK Act, is headed to the Senate, and we must act now to stop it.

Despite opposition from the public, 275 members of the House of Representatives voted to deny consumers the right to know what’s in their food. This bill now not only prevents states from passing laws mandating GMO labeling, it also could make it a crime to label foods “GMO-free.”

This massive giveaway to Monsanto and Big Ag must be stopped before it becomes law. If we don’t act now, it could pass the Senate soon.  Click here to sign the petition!
