GMO awareness talk at Jacksonville Library

Jacksonville, Ore. --  Local GMO free activists hosted an informational talk regarding genetically modified crops at the Jacksonville Library Sunday afternoon.

It's one of several talks coming with the May elections just around the corner. Dr. Ray Seidler talked about the ecological and biological effects of GMO's.

Our Family Farms Coalition said they want to continue raising awareness to others about how genetically modified crops effect local and family owned farms.

"Big corporations are trying to buy out our vote. I think if anything it's just really activating the campaign and getting people excited about going out and learning more and educating themselves," said Elise Higley.

Ballots will be mailed out starting May 2nd and need to be mailed in by may 20th.
