From Dolly to Dinner: Your Right to Know

In California, voters have a chance next month to take a stand for our right to know when our food has been genetically modified, whether in plants or animals, by voting YES on Prop 37, the Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.

Stand Up to Monsanto this Wednesday—March 28th is National GMO Call-In Day

This Wednesday we’re calling on Walmart to reject selling Monsanto’s GE sweet corn before farmers start planting it this summer. Walmart cares most about their bottom-line and public image.

Join Us: This Saturday is GE-Free Action Day at Walmart!

Last week, the biotech food giant Monsanto announced it is marketing a new variety of genetically engineered (GE or GMO) food: a sweet corn intended for sale as frozen and/or canned food.
