Massachusetts’ GMO labeling bill, H. 3242, is the most popular bill in the State House, with 75 percent of the state legislature signed on as cosponsors.

But unless we make it a priority, H. 3242 may never come up for a vote.

Join OCA and MA Right to Know GMOs at a public hearing for H. 3242 on Tuesday, September 22 at the State House in Boston! More info and RSVP here

The biotech and processed food industries are spending millions to keep us in the dark about what we’re eating. As you read this they are hard at work lobbying to pass H.R. 1599, or what we call the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, a bill that would prevent passage of any state or federal mandatory GMO labeling law.

We need to fill the auditorium at the State House in Boston on September 22. This is the only public hearing about commonsense food labeling to take place this legislative session.

Please help us convince our state legislators that now is the time to label GMOs!

Join hundreds of parents, farmers and foodies on September 22, at the State House in Boston!
