Open to the Public: Join us at the State House
What: Lunch-In for Labeling
When: June 8th, 12 noon - 1 PM
Where: The front steps of the Massachusetts State House
Why: This is our last chance to pass a GMO labeling law in Massachusetts!
This will be a fun and family-friendly way to send a message to our lawmakers: It's time to Label GMOs! The Massachusetts legislature has until July 31st to pass a popular GMO labeling law, but it might not happen if we don't demand our right to know what we're eating, visibly and vocally.
- Come for a few minutes or for the afternoon.
- Learn about what's happening with GMO labeling
- Meet others who share your concerns
- There will be snacks and yummy samples provided by our sponsors, but please plan on packing your own lunch.
I haven't done anything like this before, can I just watch?
Absolutely! We hope that random passersby will stop and hang out with us. No pressure!
Can I bring kids?
Please do! This will be fun and family-friendly event.
Can I bring teens?
Yes! This will be a great chance to see democracy in action.
What will be doing that hour?
We hope to see a good amount of talking and connecting. We don't often get together in person! There will also be speakers, song, and special visitors! And of course some sign-waving to cars, media and passersby.
How can I help out before hand?
Please share this announcement and if you're on Facebook, invite people to the event page.
Who do I talk to when I am there? Do I check in somewhere?
We will have a clearly visible welcome table to get you oriented once you're there. Get a sticker, some information and meet some of our lovely organizers! (Kristi and a few others from Savvy will be running the Welcome table.)
Is there food provided?
There will be snacks and yummy samples provided by our sponsors, but please plan on packing your own lunch. (There is also a Chipotle 5 minutes away...)
