Dreaming of a GMO Free Maui? It's coming!
We are excited to announce a new, restructured GMO Free Maui, & asking for your support as we move forward.
Last year, the perfect storm of dedicated individuals, organizations and voters on Maui accomplished the impossible. We made history by passing the first ever people’s initiative in Maui County. We voted YES on a moratorium on GMO crops and outdoor chemical testing.
Monsanto and Dow spent a record $9 million dollars on the vote NO campaign.
We fought back with PEOPLE POWER.
We knocked on doors, paid for radio commercials with pocket change, waved signs on the side of the road, held talk story sessions all over the island, ROSE UP against the lies and bully tactics of Monsanto and Dow, and WE WON. It was truly a grassroots, community effort, and it was incredible.
Now, our vote is being defended in court, where judges consistently side with these agro-chemical corporations. It is increasingly clear that these corporations also have incredible influence over our state government…
For the first time ever, MAUI has a grassroots voting block and we have POWER. With the right organization, a little creativity, and strong community support, we can push Monsanto and Dow Chemical out of Maui, for good.
The people of Maui have proven that community and people power are stronger than money and corporate abuse, but only if we use it wisely.
