About Us


Who We Are

The People’s Cafe is a cultural arts organization dedicated to empowering parents, educators, and students to use their voice towards unity, reconciliation, and social-emotional sustainability.

Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is to advocate for educational equity, diversity, inclusion, and wellbeing. We do this through our arts-integrated engagement, advocacy, and direct service programs. 

Our vision is to see a sustainable, just, and unified world. We believe that when we as a people can come and reason together and go beyond reintegration and truly immerse ourselves in each others’ narratives to seek understanding, then we can work together towards equity for all, especially our students.

By establishing relationships and partnerships with creative community builders, artists, and change agents, The People’s Cafe will be a space where diverse stakeholders find common ground in order to begin the conversation on community renewal and transformation.
