Matching Fundraiser for Redeemer Center for Life

This fundraiser is part of a giveaway. In conjunction with several other pro-BLM coffee companies, we have put together three exclusive giveaway brew kits built with some of the best equipment around. This includes items donated by notNeutral, Baratza, Espro, and Acaia. Read more about the giveaway . Visit Baratza's fundraiser for Equal Justice initiative  and notNeutral's fundraiser for Color for Change .

Across the world, screens are showing the systemic racism and police brutality that is not only on our streets now but has been there for generations. Black Lives Matter is a movement to emphasize this, to shed light on injustices that have and are brushed under the carpet.

The coffee industry is built on the backs of Black and Brown labor. It has a long and documented history of slavery and colonialism. And while society may appear to have changed, the racist structures have undoubtedly remained. There are many of us in this industry that occupies positions of power, express our desire to establish fairer communities, and possesses important grassroots influence. It is up to us to initiate change. We need to be and act as allies to the Black community.

If you have seen our recent post following our support of the Black community and the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, you will have also read our list of actions. This is part of that list.

Acaia is donating $5000 to Redeemer Center for Life. We encourage you to match us and/or share this campaign and giveaway. All funds raised through this fundraiser will be donated directly to Redeemer Center for Life
