580 Café

A community  dedicated to building justice
through dialogue, creative expression, belief and activism

The 580 Café Experience

In 2010, 580 Café opened its doors and space for students to build collective care and share food, conversation, and activism.  In our fourteen years of activity and community, the "580" has become a place for students to express and engage their worldviews, ideas, activism, and creativity.  Students design, lead and coordinate our daily, weekly, and special gatherings.   
Our weekly programs and gatherings provide ways for students to create, hold and find brave space to share in collective learning, dialogue, and relaxation  together. 
Take a break and find space to step outside the busy-ness of studies and work. Check out What we offer to find out how to connect with the 580 Café community!
 580 Café is an initiative of Wesley Foundation Serving UCLA, a registered 501c3 Not-for-Profit
