Join tens of thousands of people around the world calling on McDonald's CEO Don Thompson to end the burger giant's predatory marketing to our kids.

Introduction

Esther Sciammarella, Executive Director, Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition
This initiative has struck a chord particularly among health professionals who work in the communities most targeted and impacted by McDonald’s marketing. In overwhelmingly Latino communities such as Pilsen, over 50% of children and adolescents and 65% of adults are overweight.
As a grandmother, I am well aware of the powerful connection that McDonald’s marketing can create with children. On quite a few occasions, I’ve taken my grandchildren to McDonald’s since they are infatuated with your children’s characters, like Ronald, and the fun environment you create to appeal to children.

We face what the World Health Organization calls a slow motion catastrophe of non-communicable diet-related diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, linked to the promotion and consumption of fats, sodium, and sugars that are ubiquitous in fast foods.
