VTRTK announces two new Grassroots Action Forums
March 18, 2013
It’s time to ramp up the grassroots action! Let’s show our legislature and our Governor that there has never been a better to time to stand up for Vermont and protect the interests of its citizens. Let’s make 2013 the year we pass a GMO labeling law in Vermont!
Last month, VT Right to Know visited White River Junction, Brattleboro, Montpelier, Middlebury, and Burlington to speak to crowds of concerned citizens about GMO Labeling. Almost 6000 Vermonters have signed the petition to require labels on GMO’s and hundreds have contacted their legislators. The Vermont food coops, Ben & Jerry’s, VBSR, Lake Champlain chocolates, and a growing list of specialty food producers and grocers have announced their support of the campaign.
To find out more, join VT Right to Know for a second round of forums across the state. Speakers will provide information about the issue of GE labeling, updates on the legislative process, avenues for citizen activism, and, of course, GE-free refreshments.
