Bringing it Back: A New Coffee Slavery Report

As I stand on the verge of applying to be a barista for the second time in my coffee career, Not for Sale’s FREE2WORK campaign sent out a report evaluating various brands in their policies and efforts to address child and forced labor in coffee supply chains. What a timely connection of my current “career path” to my continuing concern to live in a way that contributes to increased blessing and opportunity for the least of these—the invisible workers who contribute so much to my way of life. (If you’re new to this, let me simply state that coffee production is one of the areas where the most child labor and slavery occurs in our world today. So if you want to know where to start with living for a “free” world, it’s not a bad place to start.)
