North American Coordinating Committee

North American Coordinating Committee (NACC)

The Campaign to STOP GE Trees (CSGET)  is a national and international alliance of organizations that have united toward the goal of prohibiting the ecologically and socially devastating release of genetically engineered trees (GE) into the environment.

Global Justice Ecology Project coordinates, administrates and fundraises for the campaign. World Rainforest Movement, based in Uruguay, is the Southern Contact for the Campaign and has materials in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
