Mission Statement

We fight for a world where the poor, the powerless and the innocent don't pay the price for our lifestyles as victims of sweatshops and climate change. We endorse the work of labor unions whose organizing has helped abolish child labor from coffee, rubber and cocoa plantations, and push for adults do the work, so their children can go to school.

Description

Len Morris is the Editorial Director of Media Voices for Children, a documentary filmmaker, lecturer and advocate for children’s human rights. Len’s work has been shown at the US Department of Labor, The World Bank, the US State Department, USAID and on dozens of college campuses. As an organization we applaud those businesses that work to abolish all child labor from their supply chains through third party independent monitoring. We support indigenous communities in their efforts retain control of their water, land and precious natural resources for their own benefit. We believe solutions should be local and we need to bet on people directly. Media Voices for Children is a member of the Child Labor Coalition, which works to combat commercial exploitation of children by testifying before state and federal legislatures and agencies on child labor, presenting comments in response to regulatory initiatives, hosting briefings and conducting campaigns.
