Dear Green American ,
The battle in Washington state for GMO labeling needs your help. The No on I-522 camp has officially broken the record in Washington for most money raised to oppose any ballot initiative in the state’s history. Just before the weekend, the Grocery Manufacturers Association contributed another $3.7 million dollars in last ditch efforts to derail Initiative 522, which will require labeling of genetically engineered products in Washington state. This brings total fundraising for No on I-522 to $21.4 million dollars. Yes on I-522 doesn't have the same corporate money, but they have YOU - concerned Americans who believe we have a right to know what we are eating.
Please join us in supporting our friends in Washington and take 30 minutes today to get out the vote. The most effective way we can mobilize voters is by jumping on the phones and talking to them directly, so click here to visit the Yes on I-522 webpage and get started. Never phonebanked before? No problem – a quick training is provided by the rockstar Yes on I-522 team online, and as soon as you make your first call, you’ll realize how easy it is.
Visit the Yes on I-522 webpage now to sign up for a virtual phonebank timeslot. If you’re in the Seattle area, you can use the website to search for events in your area where you can phonebank with fellow supporters in-person.
By taking just 30 minutes out of your day, YOU can help change the course of history. Let’s take our power back from the agribusinesses, and let’s do it now!
