GMO Free Florida (#GMOFFL) is a grassroots organization that has been educating and organizing about the issue of GMOs since 2010. Our goal is to get mandatory labeling of GMOs and eventually ban the release of all GMOs into the environment.
GMOFFL has upwards of 15,000 subscribers and works with many Florida organizations to help gather signatures to label GMOs in Florida. These signatures and efforts from our group members played a major role in influencing Representatives and Senators to sponsor and co-sponsor bills in the Florida House and Senate to label GMOs. These bills have been introduced in 2013-2015.
In combination with our groups and various organizations, we have helped organize events with over 10,000 people marching across Florida. We also create community events, speaking engagements, marches, rallies, film nights, pot lucks, support our local agriculture and farmers, and meet with elected officials.
