Freedom Cafe Aids Trafficking Survivors

One free cup of fair trade caffeinated beverage at a time, café general manager Dan Johnson believes he can help end human trafficking in India. The newly opened Freedom Café, located across from Totman Gym on the University of Massachusetts campus, is entirely volunteer run, and the prices are completely donation-based. Patrons are asked to donate what they would normally pay for their tea or coffee product in order to fund the building of vocational centers in India. These centers will teach job skills to survivors of human trafficking, mostly women and children, through Jubilee Market, an organization building such centers in India.
