Donald Trump? Really?

“Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.” – Donald Trump

OK, we know. Donald Trump has no place here. Yet somehow Trump’s words, much as we hate to admit it, resonated this week.

Following two deeply devastating, nail-bitingly close losses, of battles that were not only near and dear to our hearts, but battles that were yours, in every sense of the word, we are moving forward.

And we are already finding new ways.

It’s tempting to think that all your energy, your money, your time, was wasted. But your support for GMO labeling initiatives, in California last year, and in Washington State this year, has propelled GMO labeling onto the national stage.

You are the reason Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert, the New York Times and the Guardian, are talking and writing about GMOs.

Your commitment, your passion, have forced Monsanto and Big Food to cough up millions of dollars to fight you. You’ve dented their wallets. You’ve cracked their foundations.

Now is not the time to give up or turn back. So we are already looking for new ways, new paths to victory. We thank you for your past support. And invite you to stay in this fight. Until we win. Thank you!
