100 Cups of Coffee events are held in partnership with the Northern Dutchess NAACP, the Dutchess County Interfaith Council and Family Services. The events are an opportunity for all members of the community to come together and talk over coffee and tea to find ways to build on Poughkeepsie’s strengths as a kind, safe and connected city. Jody Miller, Chair of the Commission on Human Rights said, “We are seeing incredible changes as a result of people talking together about the things that matter most. People tell us how much they enjoy connecting with each other.”
