Loved writing this...

On July 23, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. They voted against the 93 percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against you. Now it’s up to the Senate to stop this bill in it’s tracks. But senators need to hear from us. TAKE ACTION! Tell your senators to vote NO on the DARK Act: Text “DARK Act” to 97779 or dial 888-897-0174 to be connected with one of your U.S. Senators.
