You’ve lit a match. You’ve started a fire. And we’re all winning.

Last year, hundreds of thousands of you responded when we said we needed your help to pass the first GMO labeling law in the country, Prop 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act. Technically, we lost that battle. But because so many of you, from all across the country, donated to the campaign, shared articles and videos, talked to your family and friends about GMOs, we were able to get more than six million California voters on our side, and put politicians on notice: Consumers want the right to know!

But here’s the real win. Since January of this year, 18 states have introduced GMO labeling bills. Alaska has proposed a bill that would require the labeling of genetically engineered salmon, if the FDA approves AquaBounty Technology’s AquAdvantage salmon. Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington have all introduced bills that would require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically engineered ingredients. Hawaii has introduced multiple GMO labeling bills. Maryland and New Mexico also proposed GMO labeling laws, although those laws are dead (for now).

You made this happen. Your support put GMO labeling on the map. And now the map is literally covered in proposed GMO labeling laws. What’s next? We have to get one or two of these passed, as soon as possible. And then the rest will fall in place. Your donation today will help us do that. Thank you!

The Sleuth Journal streamlines groups of like-minded individuals and organizations to create a massive knowledge base for a ‘conscious awakening’ of what is really going on in today’s oligarchy pyramid that we call ‘society’. So many people are zombies by media, television and other means of mass brainwashing and we need to reverse the effects and give people back their minds, and in return, their power and will to change and challenge the system.
