Shoppers Right to Know in Washington State #Yeson522 Twitter Party

Do you have the right to know what’s in your food?

Mamavation thinks so. Labeling is common sense. Shoppers have the right to know what they are purchasing. Moms have a right to know what is going into the mouths of their children. And we all have the right to basic information about our food.

But right now we don’t have these basic rights because genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) are not labeled…and they dominate the grocery store.

The State of Washington will be voting on this issue in November. Over 350,000 Washingtonians signed a petition to get I-522 on the fall ballot. They have the support of farmers, fishermen, moms and dads, chefs, business and health care professionals. And the rest of United States supports them as well. 9 out of 10 Americans support labeling of GMOs regardless of race, religion, sex or party affiliation.

Who’s keeping you from knowing what’s in your groceries? Big pesticide and junk food companies. The same companies that funded the anti-transparency efforts in California last year are at it again. This time it is in Washington. Washington is the only state where labeling GMOs is on the fall ballot. Join Washington’s Yes on 522 team and support bringing more transparency to our groceries.

Join us for a twitter party on Monday, September 9th from 7-8pm PST (10-11pm EST)  to amplify our message in hopes to reach more people in the state of Washington.

  8. I am SO gonna be there! I live in Washington State, so this is close to my heart.

  9. Thanks so much for being an advocate for safe food in America. Absolutely unacceptable that most moms have no idea what is going on with our “food” system. Yes, the S.A.D. (standard American diet) is indeed SAD! Thanks again.

  10. Shared and I am looking forward to this topic!!!

  11. Looking forward to this twitter party.

  12. Mary Cummings says:

  19. cant wait

  20. Proud to live in Washington!! Can’t wait.

  21. I tweeted about the party, but my son has soccer practice until 7:30, so I dunno if I can participate.

  22. I hope they will have better luck than CA had. We have to keep fighting.

  23. we have the right to know what’s in our food, why are they so afraid of this? because they know we won’t buy their crap when we know there are GMO ingredients in them

  24. I hope I did this right
