Pamm Larry — who started Proposition 37, the genetically modified organism (GMO) labeling act voted down by California voters in 2012 — will speak in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend this weekend.
The local swing is part of Larry’s statewide tour to talk about genetically modified organism food-labeling issues in advance of Washington state’s Nov. 5 vote on GMO labeling, Initiative 522.
Larry will speak at:
■ Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave. in Port Townsend, at 7 p.m. today.
■ Nash’s Farm Store, 4681 Sequim-Dungeness Way in Sequim, at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
■ Little Theater at Peninsula College (Room J-16), 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
The lectures are free and open to the public.
Larry will speak about Prop 37 and why it failed in 2012, and talk about why she feels it is important to pass I-522, the statewide ballot initiative to label foods with genetically engineered ingredients.
Larry, a farmer, midwife, businesswoman and grandmother of three, said she was so concerned about the modern-day food system that she quit her day job and spent her time educating herself on GMOs and how to apply for a ballot initiative.
She then went on the road to pursue a ballot initiative. This effort resulted in the Yes on Prop 37, California Right to Know Campaign of 2012.
Annmarie Gianni Skin Care is funding the tour.
