Tell USDA we need stronger regulations that protect the environment, public health, and farmers from the threats of GE crops

USDA announced it is abandoning its 2008 proposal that would have updated the 1990s era-regulations currently governing genetically engineered (GE) crops and starting from scratch. As part of this new approach, USDA has opened up a public comment period through June 22nd to begin the process of crafting new regulations for GE crops. Send your comment urging strong, mandatory regulations today!

Pollinator plan aims high, but falls short. Tell the White House Task Force they can do better.

The White House Pollinator Health Task Force (WHTF) has just released its strategy to address the threats to bees, monarchs and other pollinators.  While the Task Force has developed positive, far reaching goals for honey bees, monarch butterflies and other pollinators, the plan is unfortunately far too weak to actually accomplish those goals.

We think the White House can do better.

Tell Congress to Oppose “Fast Track” for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement

Right now, the largest international trade deal in history--the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP--is being negotiated behind closed doors, and Congress is considering giving it "Fast Track" approval, which would strip Congress of its authority to debate or amend the content of the deal. Tell Congress to vote "No" on Fast track and to make the text of the TPP public!

Tell Congress to stand up for our right to know!

Tell Food Companies to Reject the GE apple!

Despite public opposition, USDA has just approved Okanagan Specialty Fruit’s genetically engineered (GE), non-browning “Arctic” apple. Unlabeled GE apples could find their way into non-GE fruit slices, juice, baby foods, or apple sauce - products predominantly consumed by children and babies who are at increased risk for any adverse health effects.
