News & Action
This month, Global Exchange, Green America and the International Labor Rights Forum released a new report urging Hershey's to Raise the Bar, which details how hundreds of thousands of children are still forced to work under abusive conditions for long hours on cocoa farms in West Africa, while others are victims of trafficking and forced labor, all for a bar of Hershey's chocolate.
As we approach one of the most popular holidays for chocolate consumption, Halloween, there is a great way that children and families can help end child labor in the cocoa industry and promote Fair Trade – by participating in Reverse Trick-Or-Treating!
Trick-or-Treaters will be handing Fair Trade chocolate back to adults, with informational cards attached, to explain the problems of the cocoa industry and how Fair Trade presents a solution. By providing children with a way to be active, tens of thousands of households in the US are getting the message that child labor and forced labor will not be tolerated by our kids.
