Support GMO Labeling in MA

The Council for Responsible Genetics believes that everyone should know what they're eating. Join us in supporting mandatory GMO labeling in Massachusetts by calling your legislators before the March 19th deadline! They need to hear from you. Visit for more information.

You think you should know what you're feeding your family? We do too!  Massachusetts is considering mandatory GMO labeling legislation, but unless they hear from YOU before 3/19, it won't happen.  We know they are hearing from industry lobbyists, so we need you to give them a call!   
The federal government does not perform safety testing of GMO foods, and there is mounting evidence of their health and environmental risks. While the jury is out on their safety, we want to be able to make our own choices.  If you want to know what's in your food, please take action to support mandatory GMO labeling legislation in Massachusetts. Your elected officials need to hear from you, now!   

Please contact your legislators to demand GMO labeling in MA

Massachusetts elected officials have the opportunity to join a national push toward mandatory GMO labeling. More than 90% of Americans want to know if they're eating genetically engineered ingredients. However, industry lobbyists are telling our Reps that people don't need to know what they're feeding their families.

Please sign this petition and make a call to you elected officials:

We need to know what we're feeding our families. Pass GMO labeling in Massachusetts this session!

March 19th is a deadline for legislators to vote bills out of committee. Please take action, now! (pick one or all):

1. Sign the petition (within seconds): 

2. BETTER - Send a quick email (click & send):

3. BEST  - Call your rep's office!:

Unless state legislators hear from people across the state in big numbers, they may not act on proposed legislation before a March 19th committee deadline. With Monsanto and pals literally trying to make GMO labeling ILLEGAL, and with 30 new GMO crops in the pipeline, we can't wait until 2016 to pass GMO labeling in Massachusetts and to activate an existing GMO labeling law in Connecticut*.

Please take action today to declare your right to know - while you still can! 

*Thank you for standing up for a more democratic and transparent food system!*

*Bonus*: Is your legislator a GMO labeling leader? see if they're on our list:

*Connecticut and Maine both passed GMO labeling bills in 2013, but they rely on neighboring states passing similar legislation before they take effect. Vermont is expected to vote on a GMO labeling bill that already passed through it's house by a landslide. This is a perfect time to join the regional tipping point toward food democracy!

Why do we need to know if it's GMO?

More than 90 percent of Americans want GMOs labeled, and we are not alone. Due to health and environmental concerns, more than 60 other countries already require GMO labeling or ban them altogether

The World Health Organization and the American Medical Association have called for mandatory pre-market safety testing of GMO foods, a standard the U.S. fails to meet. Dozens of public health groups support mandatory GMO labeling, including the American Public Health Association, the American Nurses Association, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Allergy Kids Foundation.

Parents need to know what they're feeding their families. Let's label GMOs.
