The Big Apple Coffee Party
is committed to diversity, civil
discourse, acting independently of
political parties and corporations.
We demand a government that
responds to the needs of its
citizens as expressed by our
votes and by our voices—not
corporate interests.
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.
