Description: 

Join us to watch The Dark Side of Chocolate, a documentary about the exploitation and slave trading of African children, many from Mali, to harvest at cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast. When this documentary debuted in 2010, it was ten years after the cocoa industry pledged to end child slave labor. But as the film shows, child slave labor remained a big part of the worldwide chocolate industry in 2010 - and still does today.

There will be a simple meal provided - homemade Women's Bean Project soup, cornbread, and dessert. The film & meal will be followed by a short reflective discussion, and information about which chocolate companies are Fair Trade certified - use zero slave labor, pay a living wage, and sincerely work to better the environment and their local communities.
