A community dedicated to building justice
through dialogue, creative expression, belief and activism
The 580 Café Experience
In 2010, 580 Café opened our doors and space for students to build collective care and share food, conversation and activism. In our ten 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.
In March 2020, 580 Café became "Virtual 580 Café " to care for our Mind -Body-Spirit during the global pandemic. In September 2021 we celebrated regathering in our space while maintaining CDC guidelines, and continuing our evening sessions online. The community continues to connect online and in person to nourish your head, heart and spirit.
We return to remote sessions in January 2022 in accordance with UCLA guidelines, and will offer hybrid opportunities for students to meet online and in-person by appointment only.
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 our "Daily Menu" for current offerings!
580 Café is an initiative of Wesley Foundation Serving UCLA, a registered 501c3 Not-for-Profit
