Las Cafeteras uses music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities and create "a world where many worlds fit." They are self-described organizers and community advocates, and they use music to bring people together in spite of disagreements. They create a space for the sharing of stories, attempting to create a common platform to express opinions. Through their music they also discuss vital contemporary issues, from immigration and border detentions to race and civil rights. EPK video
