Please sign the petition today! Help Stop Child Slavery

take action

More than 80,000 Care2 members have voiced their support for slavery-free chocolate from Warner Bros. Thank you so much for being one of them.

Unless we speak up against products that are made with forced child labor, companies will continue to operate as is, turning a blind eye to child slavery in favor of a larger profit margin. Will you help us get the message through to Warner Bros. by asking your friends to sign the petition too?

Instead of going to school, some children are working long hours in cocoa bean fields. They are punished with beatings if quotas aren’t met. We can prevent them from having to suffer from these abuses.

By taking a stand against modern slavery, Warner Bros. will protect these children as well as set a precedent for other companies. That’s why it’s crucial that you send an email to your friends and family, share the petition on Facebook, and send this tweet to ask your network to support the cause.

Here’s a quick message you can copy and send to rally support:

Hi –

Even today, companies throughout the world still rely on child labor to make cheaper products. Behr’s Chocolates, the chocolate supplier for Harry Potter’s famous Chocolate Frogs, could be one of them. Warner Bros. continues to use this supplier even though it has taken virtually no action to ensure its production is slavery-free. Thousands of children are forced to work – and often beaten – in cocoa bean fields. That’s why it’s so crucial that we let Warner Bros. know that chocolate made with child labor is just not acceptable.

Tens of thousands of people have already asked Warner Bros. to ensure that its chocolate is slavery-free. We need to keep this momentum going, or Warner Bros. will continue to turn a blind eye to child labor. That’s why I signed this petition to support slavery-free chocolates, and I’m hoping you will too. Here’s the link:
