    GMO ingredients

    should be labeled

    I believe that genetically modified ingredients ought to be labeled and although Vermont is a small state, it can set a bold example for the nation. States can function as “laboratories of democracy,” proving that new laws can be passed and implemented successfully.

    After seeing Monsanto launch a massive campaign against GMO labeling in California, I am so proud to be a part of VPIRG’s statewide summer canvass. While expensive advertisements and lobbyists are used by corporations to achieve their desired results, nothing could ever replace the incredible change that can be made by knocking on doors and inspiring progress through conversation.

    In Vermont, we are afforded a unique opportunity to influence our legislators more directly than residents of larger states. We must not let that opportunity go to waste. Please urge your senators to support GMO labeling, and take pride in the idea that our state can motivate national action.
