Please join us Thursday, June 8 from 11am-12 noon at the Peace and Justice Center (60 Lake Street Suite 1C Burlington, VT 05401) to learn about the the supply chain of the cocoa industry and fair trade.
Like most agricultural goods in the free trade system, the main ingredient to the seemingly wholesome dessert of chocolate actually has a dark secret. This presentation focuses on the issue of child slavery and human trafficking in the cocoa industry. It is designed to educate, brainstorm solutions and create tangible action steps that fit each participant.
This presentation will be led by Amy Crosswhite.
People are encouraged to arrive at 10:30am to participate in a PJC New Volunteer Orientation.
We are committed to including the Deaf community and others who need language interpretation, if you need ASL or other language interpretation, please let us know ASAP and we will work to make that happen.
We hope to see you then!
