(NaturalNews) The Organic Consumers Association needs 435 volunteers, who will each create an OCA Truth-in-Labeling Chapter for each U.S. Congressional District and to coordinate a drive to gather 2300 petition signatures on our Truth-in-Labeling petition in order to strengthen our national network and to mobilize 1 million people against Monsanto.

After looking into some different options, OCA has decided that the easiest way to organize this campaign into chapters in each congressional district is by using Facebook. Specifically, the Facebook Causes Function, because it provides an easy way for OCA to communicate with all of you, a way to easily create and attach petitions, and Cause/chapter members can communicate with each other directly, without OCA getting in your way. All of these features will help you get the ball rolling on this campaign in your area and get OCA closer to our goal of 2300 petition signers in each congressional district. This of course, assumes that you are already on Facebook. We realize that not everyone is on Facebook. If you're not, that's ok and we can still use your help, but the bulk of the preliminary organizing for these campaigns is going to be on Facebook, so if you are willing to join Facebook just to help out with this campaign, please do.

Let's get started!

Step 1: Look up your Congressional District here by clicking on your state and locating your district or by entering your zip-code: http://capwiz.com/grassrootsnetroots/dbq/off...

Step 2: Check to see if there is a Cause for your Congressional District already by looking at the master list of Causes: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/art...

If there is a Cause already, join up!

If not, then you can create one.

Step 3: Go to Causes on Facebook: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/?m=ed6ae9f3&...

If you are already active in some Facebook Causes this link will bring up your Causes Profile. If you have never used Facebook Causes before, you will have to add the Facebook Causes Application to your profile. This is pretty easy. Once you have done this, you are ready to create a cause.

Step 4: To create a cause, select the option "Start a Cause" from the blue drop down menu.

This will bring you to a form to fill out.

The first thing is a name for your Cause. Name your Cause like this: "Join OCA's Truth-in-Labeling Campaign for MN District 8" except fill in your own state and congressional district number.

Fill in the rest of the information similar to the MN District 8 example: http://www.causes.com/causes/575933-join-oca....

It doesn't have to be exactly the same, but this is the basic information you want your chapter to see, customized for your district.

For a picture, you can use the new Millions Against Monsanto logo: http://organicconsumers.org/monsanto/images/...

You might have to save the logo to your computer before you can add it to the Causes form.

Select the state, but don't worry about the metro area or city. You can leave those blank, since this is for your Congressional District.

Step 5: Hit continue. The next step is really important. Please search for and select Organic Consumers Association as the nonprofit beneficiary of the Cause.

This will allow donations through the Cause to come to OCA, but more importantly, it will allow OCA to communicate with the Cause members once it is formed.

As soon as the Cause is created, an email is automatically sent to OCA letting us know that a Cause has been created that benefits us. We will use that info to add your Cause to the growing list: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/art...

Step 6: Once your Cause is set up, please invite your friends that you know are in your congressional district, and encourage others to form groups in their own districts!

Thanks! Now that your Cause is up and running, new members will be joining up! Visit www.millionsagainstmonsanto.org to download campaign materials to share with these folks, and start talking to each other. Look for more action suggestions from OCA soon!
