Sept 19th, 2012 KICK-OFF MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Dear members of  Transition to Organics,

Up to 80% of the food in our supermarkets contains genetically engineered ingredients, which  are grown using massive amounts of pesticides.  Pesticides known to cause birth defects, reproductive disorders, and even cancer.  Without labels, shoppers have no way of knowing what they’re eating or feeding their kids.

Proposition 37, on ballots this fall, would label these foods.  It’s a simple measure that will protect our right to know what is in our food and how it is grown.

Come learn more about Prop 37 and get involved with our Right To Know Campaign Kick-off Meeting, Wednesday September 19th at 7pm in the Topping Room of the Downtown Ventura Public Library.  RSVP here, and definitely bring a friend to:

Pesticide Action Network’s “Right To Know” Campaign Kick-off Meeting
Wednesday September 19th, 7:00-8:30pm
, 2012

Topping Room of the Downtown Ventura Public Library
651 E. Main St, Ventura

The November 6th election is fast-approaching, and the big pesticide companies like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, and DuPont are pouring millions of dollars into California to oppose this initiative and keep Californians in the dark.  We have an incredible opportunity to use our vote to stand up to these corporations and get genetically engineered foods labeled.  We can win in November, but we’ll need a lot more people involved!

So join us Wednesday September 19th, 2012 at 7pm in the Topping Room of the Downtown Ventura Public Library, and bring some friends.

At the meeting, we’ll be hearing more about Prop 37, discussing our campaign action plan, and sharing ideas for how we can get Prop 37 passed. We’ll also be planning some exciting media and voter events, and taking action by writing letters to the editor!

Use this link to let us know if you can make it, and remember to bring your friends!
