Support Organics and Non-Genetically Engineered Crops

URGENT! Take Action Now!
Support Organics and Non-Genetically Engineered Crops
Cow Eating Hay
*Alfalfa is the main food for dairy cows, beef cattle and honey bees.
 The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is about to announce its decision on deregulating genetically engineered (GE) alfalfa.* 
Do you believe organic and non-GE farmers have a right to grow foods without fear of contamination from genetically engineered crops? Do you want the choice to buy organic and non-GE products?
If so, please consider taking action immediately! Contact the USDA, the White House, and your Congressperson by Monday, January 24..
 1.Email the USDA and call the White House (202.456.1111) and tell them you support the COEXISTENCE option of conditional deregulation. 
2.Ask your Congressperson to contact House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas to express support for USDA Secretary Vilsack’s COEXISTENCE plan.
3.Share this with everyone you know and ask for their support.
 The COEXISTENCE option means the USDA would place restrictions on growing genetically engineered alfalfa to limit contamination of organic and non-GE crops. Find out the details on the USDA’s upcoming decision and background on the issue on our Whole Story blog.
