It is time to "Raise the Bar" on community involvment in the refugee resettlement process. Through our cafe in Berkeley, we are providing employment to 10 refugees. Through our barista training program, in Oakland, we look to raise up 36 more baristas who will work in other partner cafes throughout the Bay Area. Additionally, 1951 Coffee Company looks to explore new locations where the convergence of the coffee industry and refugee resettlement can be leveraged for the mutual benefit of both (Seattle, LA, New York, Chicago, Dallas?). Every dollar donated to us goes to empowering refugees to be the authors of their own growth and progress in this country. It takes a community to make successful refugee resettlement possible. Thank you for being a part of our community!
