Right To Know MN is a campaign started by concerned citizens to make the labeling of GMOs the law in Minnesota. We are a coalition of farmers, health advocates, families, and others who support healthy foods. We're moms, dads, brothers, sisters, daughters, and sons, from all different walks of life, who believe we have the right to know what's in the foods we eat.

    Friday's Meeting at Senator Klobuchar's Office

    Senator Amy Klobuchar has made her name as a staunch consumer advocate. Her website states:"Consumers deserve products that have been tested and meet strong health and safety standards."We couldn't agree more and today, a group of citizen lobbyists, including cafe owner and Right to Know MN board member Tracy Singleton, met with Senator Amy Klobuchar's staff to share the reasons we expect theSenator to stand up for consumers over corporations when the Senate version of the Dark Act is introduced. The Dark Act - HR1599 - as passed by the House, would pre-empt state's rights to regulate or label GMO foods.We shared the history of how GMOs were introduced into our food supply NOT through rigorous testing and strong health and safety standards but via fraudulent claims of substantial equivalence. We shared the recent medical studies, including the World Health Organization's findings that Glyphosate, a main chemical used in GMO agriculture is a probable carcinogen and the New England Journal of Medicine's recommendations which concluded "we believe the time has come to revisit the United States’ reluctance to label GM foods.”We shared that over 90% of Americans polled say that they want to know if their food has been genetically modified and how over 60 countries either label or ban GMOs.And we shared our hope that Senator Klobuchar will do the right thing and protect our right to know what's in the food we eat and our right to information we need to make informed consumer decisions. Next stop? Al Franken.You too can be a citizen lobbyist! Call your U.S. Senators and ask them to oppose the DARK Act. Al Franken: 651-221-1016 Amy Klobuchar: 612-727-5220 Or visit them at the MN State Fair! Find Amy here:http://www.mnstatefair.org/interactive/maps/details/?v=1275.1Find Al here:http://www.mnstatefair.org/interactive/maps/details/?v=882.1Thank you for participating in our Democracy!
