Kids Right To KnowKids Right to Know  was founded by Rachel Parent, a 13 yrs old, who became one of the anti-Gmo movement’s most serious campaigners and gives new meaning to the term “youth activism.”

Rachel’s true compassion for the protection of animals began a long time ago when she was still young and attended a small school that nurtured and encouraged caring for others by performing for the less fortunate and elderly, included singing and playing guitar with the York Region Police choir. But it wasn’t until she became 12 years old, when she had to do a speech for all the students at her school, that it was sure she had the ability to change peoples lives and opinions.

She thought about fighting against Animal Cruelty, Poverty in Canada and Global Deforestation, but she then decided on GMOs because of the opportunity to make everyone’s health better and help improve our overloaded health care system.

Due to her interest in nature, Rachel has travelled to South America and Brazil’s Amazon, all sensitive areas that are now being devastated for the planting of Genetically Modified Soy.

The topic of GMOs was a natural choice, as the situation was urgent and needed immediate attention, she ended up winning a medal for her speech and had to prepare another one for a live audience at a Right to Know event in Toronto and created a YouTube video that urgently warned children about these organisms.

Some of Rachel’s projects include baking a 48-inch GM-free apple pie, the Occu Pie, which she brought to St James Park to share with those less fortunate, voiceover classes, animal sanctuary rescue camp which she attends every year to help with the care of tigers, monkey’s and lemurs and more.

While she likes to sport honey bee garb at protests, she has set herself the mission of freeing her whole generation from the clutches of Kellogg, Kraft, Sara Lee, McCain, Nestle and Frito-Lay.

If your children don’t know what GMOs are, here’s the simple explanation  :
