This effort brings attention to the manner in which the largest food companies in the world treat women.
The New Mexico Oxfam Action Volunteers later took their awareness campaign to the Nob Hill shopping area of Albuquerque.
Here is the text of a petition that candy recipients were asked to sign:
Dear Mars, Mondelez and Nestle:Here are some photos of the volunteers.
Here's what you can do to help the women in your cocoa supply chain:
Look: You must 'know and show' that women are treated fairly by assessing and reporting on the condition of women in cocoa supply chains.
Listen: You must listen and respond to the demands of women in cocoa supply chains and make public commitments to ensuring women's rights and opportunities.
Act: You must take concrete steps and influence others to redress gender inequities in cocoa supply chains.
As a consumer and an Oxfam supporter, I'm urging you to act now. You're one of the world's biggest food and beverage companies, and you have a responsibility to the women who grow your ingredients.
