The Force Blend

This month we’re featuring one of our Partnership Blends, which is used to support the work of the Baltimore-based FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture.  Force is an art activist effort to upset the dominant culture of rape, and promote a counter-culture of consent. This coffee will be available all month online, for your CSC, as well as at Red Emma’s, who will be hosting an event with FORCE on April 17th – check out the Red Emma’s website for details!

Force believes (and Thread agrees!) that a more difficult and honest conversation needs to happen in America to face the realities of sexual violence, and we envision a world where sex is empowering and pleasurable rather than coercive and violent. To promote this needed conversation, Force creates art actions to generate media attention and get millions of people talking, like their current project, the Monument Quilt.


The Monument Quilt is a public healing space by and for survivors of rape and abuse. It is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric, the stories are displayed in city and town centers to create and demand public space to heal.

Thread is proud to bring you a coffee this month that not only supports this important and rad organization, but is also delicious! Please enjoy this month’s coffee that provides a bright cup with hints of cinnamon and a sweet finish. And buy some online today!
