Make Your Easter Chocolate Slavery-free
Australians will spend about $2 billion on chocolate at Easter and much of it will be chocolate produced using child labour from West Africa. With this in mind, we're asking everyone to please buy and sell only slavery-free chocolate this Easter. This is the message from
ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans)
to everyone intending to buy chocolate, or run chocolate fundraising during Lent.
Catholic Social Services Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities where we work.
