I’ve released my 5th stopmotion video in my anti-slavery youtube series.  This month, we’re discovering how children in Cote d’Ivoire are impacted by our demand for chocolate–just in time to respond by how we make our Valentine’s Day chocolate purchases!

Slave- and Child-Labor Free Chocolate
Fair Trade Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Featuring my original song: Taking a Stand

Please subscribe to my channel & check back next month! Over this next year, I hope to inform and intrigue those who know very little about or may have never even heard of human trafficking. This series is launching with NYC Urban Project’s LoGOFF campaign to explore what it means to live Local, Green, Organic, Fair (trade) and (slave) Free.
