ONLY Fair Trade Chocolate will do!

On June 8th, filling up both sides of Broadway in Times Square in 97 degree weather people showed up for "Raise the Bar, Hershey" ...activism at its best. Right in front of the Hershey headquarters!

These were students from all across New York and across the country saying "What do we want? Fair Trade! When do we want it? NOW!" Calls, responses, and posters up and down the streets letting everyone know what Hershey needs to do.

You know what a supporter of fair trade chocolate I am! I take my chocolate very seriously!

Get involved along with Green America and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

Help us keep the heat on Hershey by taking action this summer:

1. Take part in our We Want More from our S'mores action
2. Host a movie night and show the Dark Side of Chocolate
3. Collect petition signatures in your community

Now I think I will go eat some more fair trade chocolate.
