Kangaroo Actions Promote Justice in the Tobacco Supply Chain on International Human Rights Day
For months, Kangaroo Consumers have been urging the convenience store chain to ensure that workers in the tobacco supply chain have access to basic human rights. Kangaroo makes over a third of its income from tobacco products and consumers are gathering at stores in three cities in NC to encourage Kangaroo leadership to contact Reynolds and insist that the tobacco giant sign an agreement with FLOC to ensure freedom of association and other internationally recognized human rights in the tobacco supply chain.
 
 
Joins us at any (or all) of the actions in three cities:
Raleigh:
 
Saturday, December 8th at 12pm at the Kangaroo location on the corner of Avent Ferry and Gorman St.

Sunday, December 9th, at 12:30pm at the Kangaroo location on the corner of Estes and Franklin St.
