Advocacy on Important Issues
DEAN RALLIES THE PUBLIC AT A GMO LABELING RALLY AT THE STATE HOUSE IN BOSTON
We have been intensely committed to advocacy as a tool for change since the beginning. We testified at committee hearings and lobbied legislators, spoken at and advised UN agencies, and rabble roused at rallies and community gatherings at home and abroad.
We have written speeches for Presidents (Timor), helped organize indigenous communities to fight destructive natural resource exploitation (Ecuador, Peru, USA, Canada), marched with farmers demanding justice and land reform (Guatemala, Nicaragua) and even advised governments on legislation (Ethiopia, Brazil, Kenya).
We have advocated for GMO Labeling in Massachusetts and nationally, as well as advocating for paid sick leave, raising the minimum wages, pregnant workers fair treatment, keeping integrity in national organic standards and fair trade, and other important social advances.
