On Halloween night, children will hand candy back to the adults who answer their door at over 100,000 households this Halloween. It’s not that they dislike candy; rather, the kids will be giving out Fair Trade chocolate attached to informational cards to raise awareness of the child labor, forced labor, trafficking, poverty and environmental degradation that is widespread on cocoa farms. Since the event was launched five years ago, Reverse Trick-or-Treaters have delivered this important message, and a solution, to over half a million North American households. Reverse Trick-or-Treating is sponsored by Global Exchange’s Fair Trade Cocoa Campaign and Equal Exchange, a worker owned cooperative offering fairly traded coffee, chocolate, tea and snacks from small farmer cooperatives around the world.
Thanks to donations from coalition members, NW Food Front Cooperative and Equal Exchange, we’re able to give out FREE FREE Reverse Trick-or-Treating kits in October to help Portland families participate in this great awareness building event. Organize your group and take action! We’re making it that easy for you!
Through providing children with an opportunity to have their voice heard, hundreds of thousands of households in the US are getting the message that child labor and forced labor will not be tolerated by our kids. Join us and Reverse Trick-or-Treaters around the country in reaching over 200,000 households this year!
Pick up your FREE kit at any of the NWFTC October Fair Trade events or at NW Food Front Cooperative throughout October located in NW on 23rd & Thurman.
