Today will undoubtedly be the best day ever for #YesEqual. Thursday, July 28th is a chance for two corners of our community to raise our voices against bigotry and intolerance, simply by doing what we do best: making coffee, hanging out, and raising money for awesome causes.

First, today (Thursday, July 28th) there’s an amazing event happening in New York. RBC NYC (71 Worth Street) will be hosting the #YesEqual Manual Brewdown – you can learn all about it here. All proceeds from the event go to benefit Equality Texas, and there’s an amazing group of coffee companies sponsoring the event, including Counter Culture Coffee,  MadCap, Ritual, Barismo, and Coava. This event is sponsored by Sprudge.com, and 1/2 of of us will be in attendance to write down funny things you say and drink beer with you. Event starts at 7:15!

Second, today (Thursday, July 28th) there’s an #YesEqually amazing event happening in Olympia, Washington. Espresso Parts (600 4th Avenue East) is hosting an epic Thursday Night Throwdown, with all proceeds to benefit Stonewall Youth, an Olympia-based organization that promotes equality and provides a myriad of youth resources. This event is graciously sponsored by Espresso Parts, Batdorf and Bronson, Victrola, Dillanos, and Sunshine Dairy. Event sign-up starts at 6:30PM!

We’re beyond thrilled to be sponsoring and supporting these events, and we thank you all in advance for getting out there in person and making your voice heard. We are all #YesEqual, and we love you all.
