Last night Coffee Strong (the veteran-owned, veteran-operated GI coffeehouse that provides a safe place for soldiers to share the effects of disastrous wars, within 300 meters of the gates at Ft Lewis) was robbed and vandalized.
There was no reason for this. Coffee Strong welcomes soldiers with a free cup of coffee. There is access to the Internet, an informative library, and many referrals are available to community resources, including GI Rights counseling and Veterans Benefits. Please donate today to help this amazing place recover from this act of
Resources for veterans are incredibly important. Paramount. Those people need a special type of empathy, resources, understanding and community to lean on and this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable.
Trying to oppose an oppressive system is one thing, but trashing a place which welcomes veterans, gives them coffee, access to the internet, reading material and a sense of community should absolutely not be tolerated. That’s removing resources from people who really freaking need them and that’s totally despicable.
Edit: I’m browsing their website right now and seeing everything they offer straight out of this place and I’m absolutely incensed to have learned that someone had the fucking audacity to trash this place. Just disgusted and angry.
Signal boosting. Also bookmarking their website. That’s an awesome shop, right there.
