Dear CCOF Member,
We need your help to stop a dangerous pro-GMO bill that undermines organic agriculture and the organic label!
On Thursday, the House of Representatives will vote on HR 1599, otherwise known as Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act (HR 1599).
What Does the DARK Act do? This bill:
- Stops states and counties from regulating GMO crops to protect organic farmers from GMO contamination. Organic standards prohibit the use of GMOs.
- Undermines the organic label by allowing GMOs to be labeled as “natural,” which is a label with no regulatory meaning that causes unfair competition in the marketplace.
- Halts all efforts to require GMO labeling.
Dial 1-202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Representative's office.
