A Cup of Freedom

If you live in Northern CA close to Rocklin (about 30 minutes outside of Sacramento), you should pay Origin Coffee and Tea a quick visit and grab a cup of coffee while you’re at it. Origin Coffee was founded as a response to the atrocity of human trafficking and with the “belief that people have priceless worth.” It is a “place where everyone works for free to set victims free.” 100% of all Origin Coffee’s profits are given to the International Justice Mission, which is currently the largest organization working towards abolishing human trafficking. Origin Coffee is a great testament as to what can happen when a community comes together and says, “enough is enough.” The community of Rocklin discovered an injustice, identified a way to combat it, and then choose to act. Wouldn’t it be great if more communities followed Rocklin’s inspiring example?
