What Can Happen Over a Cup of Coffee?
The Democratic Cup is slow activism and a resistance to all divisive rhetoric in our culture today. It aims to stimulate dialogue, energize individual voices, and raise money for progressive causes through the sale of handmade cups. The cups have been collaboratively made by ceramic artists and illustrators based in the US who want to counteract hateful speech, which goes against our progressive values. As a country, we need conversations and connections to reinforce the dignity and inclusivity of all Americans, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality, and culture. The Democratic Cup believes that these cups will act as agents of social change by generating positive political discourse. Join us in our effort to find common ground and mobilize the best in people!
