Add your voice to the campaign to Hershey Call-In Day! International Labor Rights Forum reports:

 For years, chocolate companies have known about abusive child labor in the cocoa industry in West Africa. As a result of the constant pressure, major chocolate companies like M&M/Mars and Cadbury have recently agreed to stronger labor and environmental standards in the production of the cocoa they use. But one iconic US brand is lagging behind—and they need to hear from YOU today!

  Suggested calling script:

 

"Hi, my name is ___ and I’m calling from ___. I am a huge fan of [insert your favorite HERSHEY candy here]*. I’m calling today to ask Hershey to become a leader in sustainable cocoa production by purchasing Fair Trade Certified cocoa for your candy bars. With a label from an independent third party certifier, consumers have a way of knowing that Hershey is working to respect farmers and the environment, and end abusive child labor in the cocoa industry. Fair Trade is the only label that gives farmers a fair price for their cocoa beans so they can support their families and escape poverty. Thank you for your time!"
