YOU have been Keeping Us Strong for 10 Years

Coffee Party USA is looking for passionate people from all America’s diverse communities who want to work together across our differences to reclaim our government for the people. Ten years ago, Coffee Party was one of the few organizations working against the ways money corrupts our politics and working for non-partisan/trans-partisan citizen involvement.

Thoughts on MLK from Coffee Party Volunteers

Some of our Coffee Party USA activists consider what we have learned from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (February 2017) (From Victoria) Of all the words of wisdom left behind by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the ones that struck a deep and resonating chord with me were those in the passage in which he used the words “flotsam and jetsam.” With “flotsam” being the wreckage of a ship or its cargo drifting on the sea or washed ashore, worthless […]
