MEDFORD, Ore. — A couple months before Jackson County voters will decide whether to ban GMO’s, one group is kicking off its campaign to support the ban.
The group, “Our Family Farms Coalition” is holding a launch party. They say they’re trying to rally volunteers and layout strategies ahead of the May election.
The measure would ban anyone from raising genetically engineered plans in Jackson County. The kick-off event starts Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. at the Woolworth building in downtown Medford.
