Pono Cocoa started this petition to The Hershey Company

We are ending child slavery in cocoa.

We have 4 goals to complete the process.

First, be aware, there are 1.5 million children farming your Hersheys. And they are not paid--often they are sold. This is illegal. It is also illegal to profit from labor and human rights violations.  

International Labor Organizations call it the "worst forms" of child labor out of ANY industry.

Our 4 goals are:
1. Educate villagers in Tepa, Ghana of child labor laws

2. Enforce child labor laws with the help of local police

3. Added Value Cacao.  Ghanian cocoa farmers can make chocolate for the first time in history thanks to Pono Cocoa and are selling the finished product at a more fair rate the $1.50 per pound.

4. Unite the craft chocolate industry ($100 mil/yearly) behind Pono Cocoa to lobby against "Big Chocolate" because craft chocolate makers cannot fairly compete with trafficked, child labor. Some Pono Cocoa companies pay as much as $13 per pound. Craft Chocolate cannot fairly compete against human rights abuses.
