Maine's GMO Labeling Campaign - Where We Go From Here

Saturday, September 21, 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
The Spotlight Stage

MOFGA is keeping Maine's GMO (genetically modified organisms, or genetically engineered foods) labeling initiative moving forward, and we want everyone to know how to help ensure victory this coming January (when Governor LePage has promised to sign our bill into law).
Please come to our Public Policy Teach-In on Saturday, September 21, from 2:00 to 3:30 at the Spotlight Stage.
A panel of speakers will include Representative Lance Harvell (R - Farmington) and Senator Chris Johnson (D - Lincoln County), lead sponsors of our bill; Jim Gerritsen, proprietor of Wood Prairie Farm in Bridgewater, president of Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association, lead spokesperson in the class action suit against Monsanto, and invaluable, visionary activist in Maine's GMO labeling campaign; and Laura Murphy, associate director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic and an assistant professor at Vermont Law School. Murphy is leading the clinic's legal advocacy toward passage and defense of labeling requirements for genetically engineered foods in Vermont. She testified in support of Maine's labeling law this April. Logan Perkins, MOFGA's GMO labeling campaign director, will moderate.
