I-522 discussions coming up

Sep 5th, 2013 | Category: News

Several events are scheduled this month to discuss the I-522 initiative on the November ballot. I-522, if approved by voters, would require genetically engineered foods to be labeled in Washington State. A Non-GMO Discussion with Howard Vlieger, a third-generation Iowa farmer, and internationally recognized speaker on the topic of GMOs, will take place on Monday, Sept. 9 at the Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op in Everett from 6 to 7:30 p.m.; and Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op, Room 309. Just Label It with Pam Leary, who founded the grassroots effort in California for Yes on Prop 37, will take place Monday, Sept. 23 at the Fairhaven Public Library at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op at 6:30 p.m. Vlieger and Leary are on a speaking tour throughout the state in September, organized with the group Volunteers for I-522. GMOs: To Label or Not? The North Bellingham Grange, in its meeting hosting the Pomona Grange, will discuss the GMO labeling issue on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

In our October issue of Grow Northwest, we will present a Q&A about I-522 and talk with local businesses and organizations. Do you have GMO labeling questions? Submit them to editor@grownorthwest.com.
