In December, as we were organizing consumers to protest Rep. Mike Pompeo’s DARK Act—a federal bill to preempt state GMO labeling laws—we reached out to many of our allies who share our concerns about GMO foods, pesticides and states’ rights to pass laws to protect their citizens.
Many groups responded positively, pitching in to mobilize their members, organize buses, and do whatever else necessary to make the December 10 protest a success. Because as we’ve all learned over the years, it will take all of us, working together, to fight some of these battles.
CREDO was one of those groups. As it turns out, there are a lot of CREDO members and action-takers who share your concerns about food safety and protecting the environment. Many of you who have signed OCA petitions have likely also signed CREDO petitions addressing similar issues.
We believe in working with other groups to achieve our—and your—goals. That’s why we were pleased to learn that CREDO has selected OCA as one of three nonprofits that will receive CREDO funding this month (February).
How does the CREDO funding work? It’s based on a vote count. The more people who vote for OCA between February 1 – 28, the more funding we’ll receive.
Who can vote? Anyone who has ever signed a CREDO petition, or purchased CREDO mobile or credit card services.
So this month, we’re asking that you support OCA with your vote. Of course, good old-fashioned, regular donations are always welcome, too. Thank you!
