From GMO Free NY
Sometime during the next 7 days, contact your district Assemblymember AND Senator and ask them to support bill A.3525 (Assembly) / S.3835 (Senate), which would require the labeling of genetically engineered foods sold in New York. Even if you contacted your legislators earlier this year, please take the time to do it again.
We can't stress enough how important it is that EVERY Assemblymember and Senator hear from their constituents. They need to know that there is strong public support for GMO labeling! To date, the loudest voices in their ears have come from the lobbyists the biotech industry and big food companies have sent up to Albany. We need to drown out their voices! So no matter where you live, reach out to your elected officials. Emails are good, phone calls are better, visits to district offices are best!
Talking points for an email or phone call:
If you are willing to go the extra mile and visit your legislators in their district offices, don't worry about visiting within the next week. Just make sure you schedule your meetings before the Christmas holidays. Come January, they all return to Albany for the start of the 2014 legislative session. State all of the talking points listed above and anything else you want to add. Also, if you want some informational flyers to leave behind with your legislators, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
