The Big Apple Coffee Party
is committed to diversity, civil discourse, acting independently of political parties, corporations, and of political lobbying networks.
We demand a government that responds to the needs of the majority of its citizens as expressed by our votes and by our voices—not corporate interests as expressed by misleading advertisements and campaign contributions.
We want a society in which democracy is treated as sacrosanct and ordinary citizens
participate out of a sense of civic duty, civic pride, and a desire to contribute to society.

The Big Apple Coffee Party
consists of grassroots activists who live in New York City who meet regularly to advance our common goals.
