Proposition 37, Are You For GMO Labeling or Against it?

This is an ongoing issue with donors on both sides so the numbers have already changed. The poster shows the updated numbers while the rest of the post remains the same. It’s good to see so many companies contributing on the side of changing the law in California.

 Tomorrow is voting day! Please read why it is so important to vote yes on Proposition 37 in California. Which side are you going to believe? We have a right to know what is in our food!
