Coexist Coffee
You’ve seen the bumper stickers. Yes, those ones, with multiple religious symbols. But do you know what they’re about? Coexist goes beyond the bumper sticker to raise funds for communities with a history of conflict. Coexist creates working environments where those who have been at opposition work together. Profits from Fair Trade coffee grown in Uganda go to local schools. Profits from clothing go toward Indian community schools.
