La Cultura Cura Cultural Arts Cafe

After much planning, we are happy to announce that we will be reopening La Cultura Cura Arts Cafe at our new space 2285 International Boulevard, Oakland. We’ll be kicking off a series of pop-ups starting with a Cafe y Cumbia event on September 28th. Please save the date! More details to come.

La Cultura Cura Cultural Arts Cafe is a social enterprise of Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice that aims to employ and empower systems impacted youth and young adults. We honor old Indigenous trade routes by purchasing organic coffee beans directly from our Mayan relatives in Chiapas. We promote cultural arts & activism by creating a community that contributes to the positive economic development of the Fruitvale District.
Our vision is to train and employ formerly incarcerated youth and young adults, and provide a community building space that proudly promotes cultural arts and activism. We envision a community space that contributes to the positive economic development of the Fruitvale district, that benefits the long term residents of Oakland, and responds to gentrification in a meaningful and thoughtful way. Our vision is to build a beautiful and inviting cafe, ice cream parlor, smoothie bar, bookstore, and performance space that will be a vibrant gathering space for our youth and the community.
Our coffee is 100% organic certified in both Mexico and the U.S. We drip brew our coffee by the cup to ensure a rich and extremely fresh tasting cup of coffee for each and every customer.
You can be part of this project by donating and helping us keep the cafe off the ground!
