Help PCC gather 50K signatures to require labeling of GMOs in food

We know it's an uphill battle to collect more than 240,000 valid signatures by year's end to put I-522, the GMO foods labeling initiative, on Washington's November 2013 ballot.

But it's worth it.

I-522 would require producers to tell us whether any food we buy from stores was created via genetic engineering. We already know knowledge is power: think how much better we understand what we eat since 1990, when calorie and nutritional information was required on labels, and since 2002, when country-of-origin labeling was required.

PCC has pledged $100,000 toward the signature-gathering effort and has petitions available to sign at all nine of its stores and at its University District headquarters in Seattle. If you'd like to help gather signatures (and we'd love your help!) email GMOvolunteers <at> pccsea.com

Help us meet our goal: 50,000 signatures by the end of October! We're already 1/5 of the way there. Tell your friends, your Facebook friends, your book club, your workout buddies. We're all in this together.
