SLAVERY IS WRONG

YOU KNOW IT. WE KNOW IT. AS A COUNTRY, WE'VE OFFICIALLY KNOWN IT SINCE 1863. BUT HERE'S SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW --

SLAVERY STILL EXISTS. WE WANT EVERY MAN,WOMAN AND CHILD TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE 27 MILLION MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, 
JUST LIKE THEM, LIVING IN THE SHADOWS. IN BROTHELS. IN FACTORIES. IN QUARRIES. WORKING 
AS SLAVES. 

IN 161 COUNTRIES. INCLUDING OUR OWN. WE ARE
HERE TO SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY. NO MORE BONDAGE. NO MORE SEX TRAFFICKING. NO MORE
CHILD LABORERS. NO MORE, STARTING NOW.

Too many women and children live as slaves.The cocoa industry is rife with it.
And now they are denied cocoa to boot.
Thanks Julie, for shining a light on a medieval practice.
