Occasionally, an outraged citizen turns on the establishment and starts a grass roots national campaign. One such citizen is Connecticut mother Diana Reeves. She quit her promising career with an upscale accounting firm to take care of her young son with cancer, who died before turning five.

With her other two children suffering from health problems, Diana channeled her grief into researching food and its relationship to health, including the effect on health from GMOs.

Her concern and curiosity eventually led her to getting involved with local activist groups NonGMO Hartford and the Connecticut Right to Know group which was pushing for state mandated GMO labeling.

Working with those groups, Diana vigorously campaigned with emails and leaflet handouts to get Connecticut citizens behind that state's proposed congressional bill HB 5117, which included a provision requiring GMO labeling in Connecticut.

The Connecticut Right to Know campaign had garnered overwhelming public support for the provision to label GMOs, and they were certain the provision would be a slam dunk in the State's House of Representitives.

But at the eleventh hour, the GMO labeling provision was taken out of the bill.
