Vote Yes on Prop 37!

Join California FarmLink on November 6 and VOTE YES on California Proposition 37.

We have the right to know what is in our food!

CFL believes that people have the right to make informed decisions about how to feed their families.  Over sixty countries around the world have require food products containing genetically-engineered (GE) ingredients to be labeled: our country should be the same!

We want there to be more conclusive research performed before they are deemed "safe" for human consumption and the environment (without intimidating farmers and scientists).  Proposition 37 gives California residents transparency to make informed decisions, bolsters the organic regulations to help farmers, and paves the way for more awareness and education about genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in our food supply.

"Democracy, via Prop 37, now serves as a means for, 
Californians to regain a transparency about GE foods
that died along with Calgene's tomato.
And this 
citizen-scientist, for one,
is voting 'yes' on Prop 37."
Belinda Martineau,
principal scientist in the creation
of Calgene's Flavr Savr tomato
