Join us for a screening of The Dark Side of Chocolate at Busboys and Poets, Shirlington Village, 4251 South Campbell Avenue Arlington, VA.
The Dark Side of Chocolate is a documentary film by Miki Mistrati and U. Roberto Romano about the continued allegations of trafficking of children and child labor in the international cocoa industry.
Co-sponsors for this event include Global Exchange, DC Fair Trade Network, Virginia to Stop Modern Slavery, and others. Panel discussion including Tim Newman from the International Labor Rights Forum will follow the screening.
You will also have the chance to write Valentines to Hershey asking their CEO to start sourcing fair trade certified cocoa. There will be fair trade chocolate available for sale in the Global Exchange store. Also, receive a 20% off coupon to use in the store.
Join us for the screening, write a Valentine to Hershey at our community table, and find out ways you can make a difference in stopping this abuse, and who to contact to eradicate child slaves in the chocolate industry.
