NY GMO Labeling Rally & Lobby Day
March 8th, 11 am - 3 pm, State Capitol, Albany, NY

IT'S TIME TO RALLY, NEW YORK!

Join hundreds of citizens from across the state on Tuesday, March 8th, 2016, for the NY GMO Labeling Rally & Lobby Day! We're going to deliver a powerful message to our legislators -- Label GMOs NOW! Bus transport is now available from Long Island, Manhattan, White Plains, New Paltz, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, and Binghamton! Reserve your seat on a bus to Albany or get there on your own steam! Carpool with friends/family to get to one of the bus pick-up spots. Take a "sick" day from work, because you're sick and tired of being kept in the dark about what's in your food!! I know I am. It's enough already!


If you're planning on attending the rally but aren't taking one of our buses, please go here and click the "Sign Me Up" button so you can register. We need you to register so we can find out who your legislators are and make appointments for you to meet with them after the rally.


Also, please go to the Event Page we've set up on Facebook to "Join" the rally and then invite all the New Yorkers you know and share it on your own Facebook timeline. We're counting on you to help spread the word, even if you can't make it yourself!


It's going to be great! Please bring colorful signs (no sticks or handles, please)!
