Tell Congress: Don't prohibit GMO labeling

Americans deserve to know what's in their food

We're building a political movement that can affect real change in Washington around critical food policy issues. By keeping up the pressure on our electeds and making our voices heard, we can help make sure they vote for Americans' health—not corporate profits.

Join Food Policy Action by taking action against the DARK Act, a bill introduced by Representative Mike Pompeo—whose #1 political contributor is the Koch Brothers—that would prevent labeling of genetically engineered food.

GMO Foods are extremely new, and as such the possible long-term effects are still unclear. Consumers should be able to play it safe when shopping and preparing meals for their families, by choosing non-GMO products.

More than two dozen states have GMO labeling bills pending this year, but this legislation would preempt states from passing any of these bills.

Big industrial agriculture companies like Monsanto have a big financial stake in their proprietary genetically modified crops—but it’s time for Congress to vote for what’s right.

Add your name to show that you stand with the 93% of Americans who support labeling genetically modified food.
