President's Column - 2015 Newsletter


by Debilyn Molineaux, Coffee Party USA President

Happy New Year!  

2014 was a turning point for Coffee Party USA.  Here’s a brief recap of what we accomplished together.

  • Our reach via Facebook grew from averaging 700K views each week to our current average of 6-13 million.  All of this happened in the second half of the year.

  • We held our first ever, Coffee Party Movie Night with “This American Journey” and we interviewed the filmmakers.  This led to creating a calendar of monthly events for 2015.

  • The Coffee Party Newsletter was successfully re-started, keeping you informed and connected.

  • Coffee Party was represented at two national conferences this year, connecting with our larger activist and dialogue communities.  Coffee Party was also represented at an invitational transpartisan gathering.

  • Our corps of volunteers grew three-fold and many work groups are holding weekly coordination calls.

  • More social media outlets like Google+ and Pinterest were added.

What does this mean for you?  With the Coffee Party in 2015:

  • You can start a Coffee Party Community (local or online) focused around scheduled monthly events that increase our capacity and skill in civility, dialogue and effective actions. Or you can create your own events and share it with others around the country!

  • You can participate in monthly events, beginning with the January book club, where we are reading Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State.

  • You can participate in petition drives, rallies, conference calls and more to connect with people in your local community and across the country.

  • You can learn about actions with like-minded organizations...or share what you know about with us.

  • You can contribute to our newsletter, sent twice each month.  Send email to [email protected] if you have a contribution.

  • You can buy Coffee Party merchandise...soon!

  • By participating, you will help shift our political culture by inciting civility and reason.

What recommendations do you have for us?  We are mission-oriented to build, nurture and connect communities to reclaim our government for the people. We look forward to hearing from you.

I am proud to be part of the ongoing experiment that is Coffee Party USA.  We welcome people of diverse perspectives and focus on building relationships with each other.  I don’t know of another organization doing exactly what we are doing, especially on a national level.  Thank you for being part of our community.

Forward in 2015!
