Today, tell Warren and Markey to oppose the DARK Act

Today, October 7th, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) will be on Capitol Hill lobbying our senators trying to convince them to support the DARK Act (HR.1599), a law that would destroy our ability to ever know what we are eating. We can not allow these corporate interests to trump our personal right to make our own choices about what we feed our families.

We support transparency in our foods because people cannot make educated decisions without proper labeling.  Today, please calling Senators Warren and Markey and ask for their help in stopping the DARK Act. We know that they support GMO labeling, but we need them to convince their peers to protect our right to know what we’re eating.

Call 202-417-3113 to be connected to Senators Warren and Markey.  Urge them to express their strong opposition to H.1599 and even filibuster it if necessary.

Please invite your friends across Massachusetts and the country to take action. Send them to this website for more info and share this Facebook event.

If the DARK Act passes, any GMO labeling efforts in Massachusetts or other states will be moot and we will be prevented from knowing what GMOs are in our food.
