GIVING    

At A Just Brew we don't have prices, but rather allow the customers to "name their own donation."

EVERYDAY JUSTICE   

Donations given to the International Justice Mission (Minus the cost to make the coffee itself) so that our customers fight slavery on a daily basis.

 We work tirelessly each week because slavery doesn't rest, and these people need our help.

We work tirelessly each week because slavery doesn't rest, and these people need our help.

  1. Rescuing Victims- getting them out of the place where they're in danger

  2. Bringing Criminals to Justice-hold slave owners, traffickers, rapists and criminals accountable in court

  3. Restoring Survivors- give them the support and tools they need to heal and thrive

  4. Strengthening Justice Systems- stop violence before it starts by strengthening the local justice system


When our grandchildren ask us where we were when the voiceless and vulnerable of our era needed leaders of compassion and purpose, I hope we can say that we showed up, and that we showed up on time.
