Member Alert: Country of Origin Labeling
KCA Members and Partners: A call has been organized in support of country of origin labeling to urge everyone to call-in to the White House on May 6, 2015.
The White House Administration needs to hear from you as a producer. They need to hear that you support COOL and the impact it plays on your operation and in the minds of consumers. The desired result is to have as many individuals as possible call in to the White House to let the President know that you support COOL and the Administration's support is needed. How to make the call? Please call President Obama at 888-793-4597 on Wednesday, May 6.
Please send this information along to all members/contacts/friends/family. Please feel free to post this information to social media as well! KCA will be posting via Facebook and Twitter, let's link up and spread this message far and wide! To recap, here is what we are asking of you all on Wednesday, May 6th: 1. Call the White House at 888-793-4597 2. When you are connected, tell the person who answers:
"Hi, my name is _______ and I am from ______. I urge President Obama to stand up for my right to know where my food comes from by protecting country of origin labels." The whole process should take no more than 60 seconds. The White House tracks every call they get on an issue, so volume of calls matter--this is why we are asking you to take a minute and make the call. Please contact KCA directly if you have any questions!
