Support the OCA and OCF
Sometimes it’s difficult to see the connection between the donations you make and real results. What have we accomplished this year, together?
Thanks to you, the OCF was the single largest contributor to the YES on 37 campaign to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in California, donating more than $1.4 million. Prop 37 may have been defeated, but the massive effort that went into supporting and publicizing the measure guarantees that the first GMO labeling law is just around the corner.
Prop 37 started a national conversation about GMOs, and truth and transparency in labeling. No longer can anyone claim that the movement to label GMOs is a fringe movement populated by few health nuts and foodies. Thanks to you, GMO labeling is now a mainstream movement that is not going away.
With your help, we forced the opposition to spend more than $46 million on a very narrow defeat. Thanks to you, more than 6 million Californians went to the polls and took a stand against being kept in the dark about what’s in their food.
Thanks to you, the momentum we built in California is unstoppable ‘ we are already working on GMO labeling initiatives and legislation in Washington State and Vermont. And in 2013, with your help, we’ll launch similar labeling campaigns to force meat producers to label meat, dairy and eggs from animals raised in Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) ‘ so consumers can choose to avoid products from animals fed GMO feed, and pumped full of hormones and antibiotics.
More than 80% of our financial support comes from people like you, who believe in the work we do. Please make a generous donation today. Thank you!
