Each month for the foreseeable future, we are collecting donations to send to charitable organizations and causes in the US. For 2020 and onwards, these highlighted organizations are ones that are centered around education and the fight against racism. It is clear that the specialty coffee industry, and society as a whole, have much to address regarding this long-standing issue. And a way to start is to contribute to those groups that are knowledgeable about action and teach those around them to unlearn racism.
For the month of February, we will be collecting for NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation. This will continue until the last day of the month.
The organization "gives voice to the 8 in 10 Americans who believe that abortion should remain legal and accessible. With more than 1 million activists and supporters representing every state in the union, we are on the front lines of the fight to preserve and expand reproductive freedom and abortion access in the 21st century."
To donate, you can select the amount you wish to contribute as an add-on for your product purchases. Acaia will publicly provide proof of donations when they are sent to the organization.
In their own words:
"8 in 10 Americans across the country believe that abortion should be legal. We’re stronger together."
"The 4 million members of NARAL Pro-Choice America fight for reproductive freedom for every person in every state. Each day, we organize and mobilize to protect that freedom by fighting for access to abortion care, birth control, paid parental leave and protections from pregnancy discrimination. We are the foot soldiers who work to ensure that abortion access is not only protected, but expanded for every American."
