Mission Statement

The mission of the Freedom Caf at UMass is build a vocational center each academic year to help both victims of human trafficking and children and teens in areas of high risk of being trafficked.

Description

Human trafficking is a big problem in the world today. We want to do our part to both raise funds to rescue victims enslaved around the world, but also to raise awareness among our students at UMass.

Many students are familiar with the issue of human trafficking, but are uneducated and unsure of how to help. Operating a caf in which 100% of the profit would go to a charity working to end human trafficking would allow them to do social justice by simply drinking coffee. Raising awareness and cultivating a concern for others can only help the climate of UMass become less self-serving and more others-centric. We hope to not only provide the UMass and Amherst community with a delicious coffees and teas, but also a chance to do good in the world one cup at a time.
