Womxn in Coffee

After a successful maiden voyage in Seattle, the Womxn in Coffee panel is making its way down to Portland, to continue the conversation surrounding the injustices women face throughout the industry. Panelists will include #coffeetoo founder Molly Flynn of Broadcast (Seattle), Sara Reynolds of Good Coffee, Alejandria Acereto of Stumptown, and Paxton Ogwaro of Never. Camila Coddou, formerly of Ristretto Roasters, who is now noted for organizing the letter employees signed and sent to The Oregonian informing them of Nancy Rommelman’s #MeNeither videos, is also scheduled to be on the panel. The free event will take place Friday, February 15, 6:30–9:30 p.m., at Black Rabbit Service Co. More information can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
