Freedom Cafe

drink coffee, end slavery

After 8 years, I regret to inform our loyal customers, volunteers and alumni that we will not be reopening the Freedom Cafe at UMass.

To experience the Freedom Cafe as you loved it, all of our equipment is being donated to the Freedom Cafe in Durham New Hampshire. They share our passion for great coffee, and the cause we've been drinking to since 2013.

Thanks again for so many great years!
-Dan Johnson

The Freedom Cafe at UMass was operated entirely by volunteers committed to end human trafficking and rescue its victims
