Friends of the Earth works to transform public policy to establish appropriate safety assessment and oversight of GMO crops and animals, and we lead campaigns to keep poorly regulated GMOs out of our food system. We advance regenerative organic and agroecological farming systems that are inherently healthier and that pose fewer risks for people, pollinators, animals and the planet.

This is just the latest of Trump’s attacks on sensible, science-based regulations, once again putting the interests of corporations ahead of the interests of our health and environment.
Over 1,200 emails released under open records requests reveal that the U.S. military is now the top funder and influencer behind a controversial genetic extinction technology known as “gene drives” – pumping $100 million into the field.
People have a right to know where their food comes from and exactly what’s in it, so that they can make informed choices about what they eat.
Instead of investing in potential problems masquerading as solutions, shouldn’t we invest in the transparent, organic, humane, and socially just production of real food in a way that benefits farmers, food-chain workers, consumers, animals, and the environment?
What do we want the future of our food system to look like, and shouldn’t we all have a say in that?
We must ensure that corporations and governments (particularly militaries) are not developing gene drives and cannot misuse this technology in ways that could have profound ecological, health or socio-economic impacts.
