This petition is a baby, with only 40 signatures when I found it! Signal boost peeps! Whether you are vegan or vegetarian or omnivore, you must agree that it would be beneficial to us all for labels to say exactly what is in their products!
This year, Congress is likely to vote on a new farm bill - the federal measure with the greatest impact on the food we eat. Currently, your tax dollars go to highly profitable agribusinesses that don’t need the help and to people who don’t live anywhere near a farm. The government does very little to help farmers grow organic fruits and vegetables. We want to change all that!
Tell Congress that you want your tax dollars to go to programs that help families gain greater access to healthy, affordable food.”

For nearly two decades, mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining has been destroying Appalachia’s natural landscape and wildlife habitats.
Recently, a native woodsman witnessed bulldozers covering the entrance of a black bear den with debris, leaving a crying mother bear and her cubs trapped inside to die.
In addition to hurting bears, the bulldozing and explosions involved in MTR destroy flying squirrel, salamander, mussel and other native animal habitats.
Please sign the petition to convince Congress to ban MTR and to enforce legal requirements for coal mining in Appalachia.
