|Thanks to Your Tireless Efforts, the Senate Stopped Monsanto’s Dream Bill Today!
Will you help make sure we can stop it for good?
,Due to the thousands of phone calls and letters you’ve helped send into your senators’ offices, the Senate did not get the 60 votes needed to move Monsanto’s Dream Bill forward to a full vote.
However, we can’t declare full victory yet — labeling opponents are already scheming to bring this bill back up before the Vermont GMO labeling law goes into effect this summer. Can you chip in now to help us stop Monsanto’s Dream Bill for good?
In just the last 24 hours, you helped us get in more than 5,000 phone calls into Senate offices. We heard from numerous Senate staff that they’ve heard more about GMO labeling than any other issue this year.
Our organizers were working in 17 states throughout the U.S. to put pressure on the key Senate targets, and it worked! Every single Senator we were targeting voted the right way on this! Senators Stabenow (D-MI), Bennet (D-CO), Brown (D-OH), Casey (D-PA), Klobuchar (D-MN), Franken (D-MN), Durbin (D-IL), Collins (R-ME), Kaine (D-VA), Warner (D-VA), Menendez (D-NJ) and many others listened to their constituents and voted to protect your right to know if your food contains GMOs.
Senators Merkley (D-OR), Boxer (D-CA), Tester (D-MT), Blumenthal (D-CT), and others were true champions in speaking up for our right to know if our food contains genetically engineered ingredients.
The Senate is getting ready to go on recess for the next two weeks, and we need your help to mobilize our nearly 1 million supporters in key districts. We need your help to:
Can you chip in now to help us ramp up our organizing efforts to stop the DARK Act for good?
Last month, Campbell’s announced that it will label all of its products that contain genetically engineered ingredients to comply with the Vermont law. This was big news and we hope that other food companies will stop fighting against GMO labels and also comply with the Vermont law. We know that all companies can do what Campbell’s did, but we must stop Monsanto’s attempt in the Senate to thwart states’ laws to require mandatory on-package GMO labeling.
