Send Rachel Parent to Monsanto Shareholder Meeting

This is Rachel Parent. She’s the founder of an organization called Kids Right to Know. At the age of 16, Rachel is already an accomplished public speaker and debater.

Rachel thinks kids—and everyone, actually—have the right to know what they’re eating. If food contains GMO’s (or “genetically modified organisms”), Rachel thinks it should say so on the label. That way, people can decide whether they want to buy it or not.

Monsanto Corporation is the world’s largest supplier of GMOs. Monsanto has fought against labeling laws.  Rachel has some questions for Monsanto. In fact, lots of questions.

Monsanto’s annual shareholder meeting is being held on January 29 in St. Louis, Missouri. Rachel is attending. She holds the proxy of a Monsanto shareholder who can’t attend herself. All Rachel needs is the airplane fare from Toronto to St. Louis, and the accommodation expenses for staying there.

While in St. Louis, Rachel will join Anne Temple, an activist with Moms Across America—another organization that’s concerned about how to feed kids the healthiest possible foods. Together, they’ll put the hard questions to Monsanto.

1545756_786052671421972_160935949_nThey’ll also hold a public rally to inform people about GMOs and why the average person should want to know whether their food is genetically modified or not.

We’d like to raise $3,900 to cover Rachel’s expenses for this event. If there’s money left over, it will go to Kids Right to Know Community Association, to continue the work of informing the public.

Please help send Rachel to St. Louis with your donation of $10, $25, $50 or more. Please donate, then share this video with your friends and family. Share it with everyone who’s concerned about GMOs and healthful food.

I’ve created this crowdfunding site because I agree with Rachel’s concerns. I try to avoid eating GMO foods because many of them contain residues from Monsanto’s herbicide product Roundup. Roundup contains glyphosate salts and esters, and I’m suspicious that these chemicals are damaging to human health.
