Support Federal Labeling Of Genetically Engineered Foods: Contact Your U.S. Representative And Senators Today!
U.S. Rep. David Bonior (D-Mich.), who was a featured speaker at the Natural Law Party's Genetic Engineering Summit in Detroit, and U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) are currently circulating a very important letter among members of the U.S. House of Representatives. (A similar letter will soon reach members of the U.S. Senate.) This sign-on letter calls on the Food and Drug Administration to enforce the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by requiring mandatory labeling and safety testing of genetically engineered foods.
Rep. Bonior, the Democratic Whip in the U.S. House, is working in conjuction with 45 national organizations to support this crucial initiative. He is the only Member of Congress who was willing to accept the 500,000 petition signatures demanding mandatory labeling that were submitted to Congress earlier this year by Mothers for Natural Law of the Natural Law Party.
PLEASE URGE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATORS TO SIGN ON TO THIS IMPORTANT LETTER. Just call the national Capitol switchboard at 1-202-225-3121 and ask to speak to your Representative or Senators. You can also email your Representative directly from http://www.house.gov/writerep. To obtain email addresses, mailing addresses, and phone numbers for your Senators, just go to http://www.senate.gov and select the name of your state; you will then be able to link to your Senators' websites. (Your Senators may not have seen the letter yet, but you can alert them to support it when it arrives.)
If your Representative or Senators would like a copy of the Bonior/Kucinich letter, background material about the hazards of genetic engineering, or any other pertinent information, please ask them to call the Natural Law Party at 800-332-0000, ext. 118. Natural Law Party representatives will also be happy to visit your Representative or Senator in his or her Washington, D.C., office to talk more about this issue.
PLEASE ACT TODAY. Also, please urge your family, friends, and everyone in your email address book to participate in this crucial initiative to protect the safety of our food supply. Be a part of history in the making. Contact your Representative and Senators today!
