Tell CEO Steve Easterbrook: Stop marketing junk food to children!

McDonald’s wants us to believe it’s modern and progressive -- without making any of the necessary changes to earn that description. That’s why we’re challenging McDonald’s power at the very heart of its global corporate operation today at its annual shareholders' meeting.

Stand with us today and tell McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook to stop marketing McDonald’s junk food to children.

On April 18, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education passed a resolution to end McDonald’s McTeacher’s Nights with far-reaching implications for all junk food sponsorship within the district. This is a huge win for everyone who cares about the health of our children. Los Angeles is the second largest school district in the country, and this decisive action sends a powerful message to McDonald’s that communities across the country will not stand for the corporation’s exploitative marketing practices in our schools.
