If the DARK Act passes, the fight for mandatory GMO labeling is over

Rep. Mike Pompeo is expected to re-introduce the Deny Americans the Right to Know –or DARK – Act any day now. This biotech industry-backed bill would not only preempt state efforts to label GMOs, it would make voluntary labeling the law of the land – permanently. In other words, if the DARK Act passes, the fight for mandatory GMO labeling is over.

You've spoken out against the DARK Act before, and we need your voice again! With Monsanto and the Big Food industry pouring everything they've got into backing the DARK Act, your representatives need to hear from you now.

Let's show Congress that American consumers are louder than these corporate bullies!
Please call your representatives today using the following script, you can find their contact information here.

Template Script: “Hello. I strongly want to know what is in the food I buy and feed my family. That is why I support the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. Unfortunately, some Members of Congress want to keep me in the dark by preempting state labeling laws and preventing the FDA from ever requiring labeling. That is why I urge you to oppose the “DARK Act,” an industry-backed bill to block GMO labeling introduced last year by Representatives Mike Pompeo and G.K. Butterfield. Instead, I urge you to support mandatory labeling legislation introduced by Representative Peter DeFazio and Senator Barbara Boxer that would give all consumers the right to know what is in their food.”
