Thank you supporters and volunteers!

Through everyone's combined efforts, this past week we successfully turned in over 350,000 signatures to the Washington State Secretary of State. The reception has been great and we have received a wonderful amount of publicity for the movement since.

What's next?

It's time to start calling and emailing our representatives to ask them to support I-522. With this being a petition to our legislature, we need to let them know that the people of Washington State want labels on GMO foods.

The earliest date we should receive word that we have qualified is January 18th, 2013. Between now and then, the state will be working on the validation of signatures turned in. Once that validation is complete and we qualify, we will be waiting to get word of our hearing date. As soon as we know the dates we will inform everyone. 

In the near future we will be showcasing our top signature gatherers.  We also hope, with further fundraising and in-kind donations, to reward some of our superstar volunteers for their efforts.

We are also forming a new expanded committee now that we have turned in the signatures. In the coming weeks, media kits, talking points and further information will be made available. 

Please consider making a donation of at least $25 to the campaign. Your financial support now will help us finish our signature drive strong and get ready for the next stages of our campaign. Can we count on you for support? You can make a donation online or mail a check to:

Check out the article written by our friend Trudy at PCC! :)
PCC Natural Markets Sound Consumer: Initiatives to label GMOs I-522 AND PROP 37 
"You think the odds of getting I-522 on the state ballot to label GMO foods are stacked against us? You're right... 
I-522 is a grassroots effort, filed by a vegan couple from the Tacoma area who felt someone had to give it a go. They set up a website for volunteers and donations at LabelItWa.org. Support has grown across the state."
