Food & Water Watch Presents: GMO-Labeling Campaign Kickoff Meeting
Jan 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
We have the right to know whether the foods we’re eating are genetically modified.
GMOs are organisms that have been genetically modified in a way that doesn’t occur in nature. They lead to the overuse of pesticides, they have untested long-term human health impacts, and they result in a consolidation in the seed sector, further concentrating the control of our food system in the hands of companies like Monsanto. Ultimately, consumers have the right to decide whether they want to put GMO products in their bodies.
That’s why we’re working to pass state legislation requiring the labeling of GMOs here in New York! But we need your help to show our decision-makers that New Yorkers want to see a food system that is more fair and more transparent. So join us at our Kickoff Meeting to learn more about the campaign and how you can get involved. Free and open to the public.
