Several of the commissioned pieces for the Coffee House Writers Project, by Eloisa Amezcua, Fernando A. Flores, and Justin Walls, among others, were written in March and April, when the global pandemic and its effects on booksellers’ and writers’ livelihoods was the central topic of the project. We anticipate that, as the CHWP continues, the project will also reflect the ongoing reckoning with anti-blackness and police violence in America and the broader world.
ORGANIZATIONS THAT NEED YOUR SUPPORT:
Coffee House Press stands against the police brutality and all forms of racial violence inflicted upon Black people in our city and around the world. We want to uplift the work that organizations in both Minneapolis and the United States are doing to provide resources to Black people, abolish the police, and seek justice for George Floyd and all Black people who have been murdered and brutalized by the police. Please consider donating to these organizations or volunteering your time to help them if you have the means.
