Help us keep the pressure on Washington.
Last month, you helped submit a record-breaking number of comments – more than one million – to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods.
And what was their response? “We haven’t made a decision yet.”1
But we have the right to know what we’re feeding our families now. So we’re taking this campaign to the next level and asking President Obama to weigh in. Will you help?
The White House has an online tool called “We the People” that lets individuals launch petitions directed at the Obama Administration. If we get 25,000 signatures in the next 30 days, the petition will be reviewed by White House policy experts who will issue an official response.
We need you to show the President that this is an important issue that demands a public dialogue – and that he should speak out publicly in favor of labeling.
Here’s how it works:
1) Visit the petition on the White House website by clicking here.
2) If you already have an account, sign in. If not, click “Create an Account” and fill out your information – then check your email to verify your new account.
3) Then click “Sign This Petition” – and you’re done! Thank you.
We have less than 30 days to reach 25,000 signatures for this petition, otherwise the White House won’t respond. Your signature today will go a long way toward showing President Obama that this issue matters to the American public.
And after you sign, please share the petition with your friends and family on social media by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter links on the petition page!
Thanks for keeping the pressure on our leaders in Washington.
– Alex, Nancy, Naomi, Sue, and the entire Just Label It team
We’re building a movement of concerned citizens – parents, health care workers, small business owners, farmers, and more – who care about what’s in the food we eat.
In October 2011, the Just Label It campaign was formed when the Center for Food Safety filed a petition with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to require the labeling of all foods produced using genetic engineering. Days later, we asked citizens from around the country to join us and tell the FDA to “Just Label It.” More than one million Americans have contacted the FDA urging them to label genetically engineered foods. Ask others to sign on by taking action at www.JustLabelIt.org/takeaction.
