Take Action to Save Our Organic!

Join Beyond Pesticides in telling Congress and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to protect public trust in the organic food label and help keep the alternative to toxic food production alive and growing!


On April 8, 2015 organic stakeholders filed a lawsuit in federal court, (Case No. 15-cv-01590-HSG) maintaining that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) violated the federal rulemaking process when it changed established procedures for reviewing the potential hazards and need for allowed synthetic and prohibited natural substances used in producing organic food. On Thursday, September 8, a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California rejected USDA's motion to dismiss the federal lawsuit.

While the courts are understanding that recent actions by USDA violate the federal organic law, the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA), it is critical that the public lets their elected members of Congress (U.S. Representative and Senators) how important organic integrity is and the importance of a strong standard in accordance with the law. 

Beyond Pesticides has created the campaign Save Our Organic, which outlines the USDA attack on organic and the importance of Congress protecting the integrity of organic standards.
