Subject: Support "Stop NAIS" in online competition!
"Stop NAIS" Idea Progresses to The Next Stage
Take Action Online to Help
The private website,
will present the "Top 10 Ideas for America" to the Obama
Administration on Inauguration Day. "Stop NAIS" has made
it to the second round of voting! Thank you to everyone who voted
for it in the first round of the competition!
It is now competing against 86 other ideas to see if it can make it into
the Top 10. All the voting totals have been re-set to zero, so even
if you voted for it in the first round, you can vote again.
The second round of voting will continue until 5 pm EST on January
Step 2: Go to
http://www.change.org/ideas/view/stop_naisBe sure to
click the box labeled "Vote!" to the left of "Protect Our
Food Supply -- Stop NAIS!" Simply leaving a comment does not
count as a vote. After you click the Vote box, it will change color
and show "Voted."
Step 3: Email all your friends, and ask them to vote also.
Step 4 (optional): The most important thing is the number of
votes that the idea receives. If you want to leave a comment
after you have voted, think in terms of what will encourage other people
to vote to stop NAIS. Keep your comment short and clear, and don't
repeat what others have already written. More Information on
In the first round of voting, over 100,000 people voted for ideas on
change.org. So this is a great opportunity for us to get the
NAIS issue in front of a broad audience during the voting process!
And if Stop NAIS! makes it to the Top 10, it will be among the ideas
presented at an event at the National Press Club on January 16, followed
by a press release. The organizers of Change.org have committed to
supporting advocacy campaigns for each of the Top 10 ideas, including
encouraging their 200,000 members to support the effort.
This is a very quick, easy way to help us raise awareness about NAIS and
potentially get significant new resources for this fight! Please go
http://www.change.org/ideas/view/stop_nais and vote now! More Online Voting:
While you're online, consider taking another moment to go to the Obama
Transition Team's official site. They have a section called
"Open for Questions". They have not specified the
deadline for submitting or voting on questions, but said they will
respond to the top issues "in the new year."
