Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
Make a Difference! Testify on Tuesday!
We have the right to know – Label GMOs!
Friends of Good Food,
Please make your voice heard on Tuesday, April 23, as MOFGA and our friends tell
Maine’s Joint Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF):
We have the right to know!
LD 718, Maine's Right to Know GMO Labeling bill,
will require that most foods and seed sold at retail outlets
be labeled if they contain genetically modified (GM) ingredients.
The bill has massive bi-partisan support from a record 123 co-sponsors.
A recent scientific poll shows 91 percent of Mainers want GMO labeling.
Please join our rally and press conference at noon on Tuesday, April 23,
at the State Capitol in Augusta.
Bring positive signs and banners!
Testify at the 1 p.m. crucial Public Hearing
before the legislature's ACF Committee.
TUESDAY APRIL 23 WILL BE MAINE'S SINGLE BEST OPPORTUNITY
TO CONVEY OUR SUPPORT FOR WHAT WILL BE
AMERICA'S FIRST GMO LABELING LAW. COME MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Maine deserves truth-in-labeling.
If you are anywhere in or near Maine,
come, bring your neighbors and friends,
and help us make history!
See you there!
The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA, www.mofga.org), formed in 1971, is the oldest and largest state organic organization in the country. The purpose of the Association is to help farmers and gardeners grow organic food, fiber and other crops; protect the environment; recycle natural resources; increase local food production; support rural communities; and illuminate for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound farming practices.
