Dear 5849376,

There's an imminent threat to the future of GMO labeling. Republicans in Congress beholden to Monsanto are set to reintroduce a bill that would block states from requiring labeling of genetically modified foods.

The legislation is so dangerous that our progressive allies are calling it the DARK Act – "Denying Americans the Right to Know" – because Monsanto and Big Ag special interests want to keep secret the ingredients they're putting into the food we eat.

This is a critical moment in our fight for mandatory labeling of GMO foods. We must act now to pressure Congress to reject this outright assault on our right to know what's in our food.

Tell Congress: We have a right to know what we're eating. Don't block GMO labeling. Click here to sign the petition.

The DARK act would be disastrous if it becomes law. It seeks to undo all state GMO labeling laws, prohibit states from further enacting legislation to require mandatory labeling of GMO ingredients, and make it more difficult for the Food and Drug Administration to enact GMO labeling regulation at the federal level.1

It's no surprise that Monsanto has hand-picked Republican Congressman Mike Pompeo, the Koch Brothers' single top recipient of campaign contributions in 2010, to introduce this legislation. As ThinkProgress noted, Congressman Pompeo is "essentially a subsidiary of the Koch Brothers' business empire."2

Monsanto and their allies have already spent over $100 million to defeat GMO labeling bills in Colorado, Oregon, California, and Washington.3 And with dozens of states likely to take up mandatory GMO labeling bills this year, they will spare no expense to ensure the DARK Act passes through Congress in time to keep us in the dark about what's in our food.

Tell Congress: Don't block GMO labeling. Click the link below to sign the petition:
