65 million.
65 million people displaced in 2016.
65 million too many.


Even after reaching the United States, refugees are often met with hardships similar to those they fled. While safe from war and political turmoil, refugees are forced to accept dangerous, dirty, demeaning, and dull jobs. This is why UC Berkeley's Habitat for Humanity chapter and 1951 Coffee Company are hosting C.A.R.E., Creating Art for Refugee Empowerment: to support refugees in their search for jobs within the Bay area. Come join us for a night of live performances and artwork from local artisans. Performances will include Noteworthy, Drawn to Scale, Celli, and more! Proceeds from the event will go to 1951’s barista training program for refugees, which teaches coffee preparation, hospitality, point of sales systems, vocational English as a second language, customer service, and U.S. workplace cultural norms intended to help these people find employment as baristas and support them in their integration within the Bay Area community.

A beverage and pastry is included with your ticket, complementary of 1951 Coffee Company.
