At Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, Rachel was a guest speaker at a fundraising event held by Vani Hari (FoodBabe) and Max Goldberg (Living Maxwell) to raise money for I-522, the campaign for GMO labeling in Washington state.

The sold-out dinner was packed with organic food industry executives, CEOs, and founders; Rachel loved the opportunity of meeting with the most amazing activists of the movement, Nutiva, Food Democracy now, GMO Inside, and the many organizations and members representing the labeling initiatives.

At the end of her speech, Rachel received a standing ovation, with people screaming loudly “Rachel for President!” Later after the event, Rachel was visiting a store in the Bay Area where she found this sweater with the same message. 🙂
