While businesses nationwide closed yesterday in opposition to the Trump administration’s actions on immigration, one specialty coffee chain in California is giving back to the movement with a one-day offer. Tierra Mia announced Tuesday that its stores would offer a free drink to recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) at all its stores in California — the chain has two stores in Northern California and nine in Southern California. The offer is taking place this Saturday, February 18 from opening to 6 p.m.
Folks who bring in their DACA Employment Authorization Card can get one free drink.
Free Drink For DACA! This Saturday February 18 from opening to 6:00pm, all 11 Tierra Mia Coffee stores in southern and northern California will offer a free beverage to anyone that comes in with their DACA Employment Authorization Card (limit 1 per person). This is in support of our community and in solidarity with peaceful immigration marches taking place in Los Angeles and throughout the country! #drink4DACA #drink4dreamers #buildbridgesnotwalls #immigrantswelcome #refugeeswelcome

With the majority of Tierra Mia’s stores in Latinx-majority communities and serving products that speak to its community’s palette (horchata frappes/lattes, Chocolate Mexicano mochas) it’s awesome to see Tierra take the lead this way.
