SCA Issues Statement on US Immigration Ban

A Statement on the Recent U.S. Executive Order on Immigration: On Friday, the U.S. government announced an executive order restricting travel from seven countries—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen—to the United States. As an organization committed to representing the specialty coffee community all around the world, we are deeply concerned about the impact this may have on our members, and especially those hoping to attend our events in the United States. We are assessing the situation and would invite any members from these countries hoping to attend our upcoming Global Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle this April to please get in touch. As stated on the home page of our website, we celebrate and nurture diversity. We oppose any effort to divide or segregate our community and will be monitoring this development carefully. Please contact [email protected]
