The Superpower of Respect
How do you “Coffee Party?” After all, Coffee Party is more than a great group of people, it is the actions we take and our relationships with each other that help heal the divisiveness in our country. So what I’m really asking, is how do you enact the Coffee Party core values in your day-to-day life? [more]
A message to our members
by Tim Danahey, Coffee Party USA Director of Public and Member Relations
Free Speech Drives Me crazy
The Coffee Party received a well-written and concise letter from one of our members who was concerned about the “outrageous” postings in our social media from one of our newsroom volunteers. The letter was complimentary of the Coffee Party principles and our objectives but stated some of the postings were beyond our standards as “the voice of reason”.
The letter was so nice and so articulate that I'd love to have the writer as a neighbor. We'd be having coffee and solving the world's problems on each other's back porch on a regular basis. [more]

Help Coffee Party USA accomplish our collective goals.
2015 is turning out to be a banner year for Coffee Party USA. We are growing our membership. We are teaming up with other organizations to promote good government by holding politicians accountable.
This year we have increased our reach by several million per week. This affords us a very large base to get our message out. It provides us the type of access necessary to a segment of the population when mobilization is in order. We played our part in the Net Neutrality movement both with original writing from our bloggers as well as through teaming up with other organizations to promote petitions. And guess what. We won.
There will be many other actions specific and transpartisan. Join our (your) movement. Together we will change America. But it starts with you. [more]
Sincere Differences Discussed Sincerely
by Charlotte Vaughan Coyle
A long-time good friend and I are having an ongoing cyberspace discussion about same sex marriage. We both are Christians but he’s pretty conservative and I am not. I’m all for it and he certainly is not. We both are smart, articulate and thoughtful. And we both love each other. I’m guessing neither one of us will change our mind, but – as he says – we are discussing our sincere differences sincerely. And we both are better for it.. [more]
