How To Ban GMOs & Fluoride from Your City
The initiative in San Juan County makes it illegal to “propagate, cultivate, raise or grow plants, animals and other organisms which have been genetically modified” in San Juan County.
In Dallas the City Council decided to end the fluoridation of the city’s water supply in 2014, which will save the city $1 million a year. Since 2010, over 135 communities have also rejected fluoride.
Here are some suggested guidelines to do the same in your city:
Step 1 – Get familiar
Call your local city council clerks office and ask them how you can go about getting a copy of zoning and by-laws on toxins and hazardous substances in your city. This process will be giving you information about the by-laws that are already in place pertaining to hazardous materials. If you’re also seeking to introduce an ordinance to ban GMOs exclusively, your city may require a certain number of signatures needed to pass an ordinance, so call to get any necessary information needed to introduce ordinances in your city that may not be covered on this website.
Step 2 – Make a plan of action
Find out when your city council meets and has open public comments, then schedule to go to a city council public meeting and approach the city council and present your case with the documents and information you’ve gathered from this website. You will usually have 3 minutes to present your case to the city council. If you can find others to support you in your efforts, bring them with you for moral support, and ask if they too would like to speak to the city council, as 3 minutes may not be enough time for you to present your entire case – they can continue where you left off after your time has expired.
Step 3 – Show a video
Watch Genetic Roulette, a 10 minute video. It should be considered being played (if requested at your city council and time is allotted) to your city council so they can see, from experts and researchers, the adverse impacts of GMOs.
Step 4 – Make a Print Out of Facts
Show them how Dallas will now save $1 million a year not using it.
Step 5 – Learn about Preemption
Preemption is where bills and regulations are intended to remove local community decision-making over food and farming systems. Many legislative officials oppose Preemption, so call your representatives and ask their stance on Preemption. If they oppose it, you may have a potential ally on your side.

Step 6 – Don’t be radical. Be legal.
Forget federal changes. Remember that you are fighting CORPORATIONS. Your county is a corporation and your Sheriff is the highest law in the land. Make the changes at the COUNTY level.
