*Order our cocoa campaign posters: Check out our child labor campaign posters and our cocoa campaign action kit. If you order your posters now, you can put them on your door for Halloween to spread the word.
*Sign on to the Ethical Cocoa Sourcing statement: Over 40 organizations and fair trade companies, including the International Labor Rights Forum, have endorsed a statement on ethical cocoa sourcing. You can read the statement here! Contact Tim (tim.newman[at]ilrf.org, 202-347-4100) to add your organization or company to the list!
