About Shannon Galpin

Most of the conversation I’ve had about the shit that matters is of over a cup of coffee. I’ve drank coffee and plotted how to change the world with friends, family, and strangers from Afghanistan to Laos to Morocco to Borneo to France and this past week I’ve drank more than my fair share in one of my favorite coffee cities, Edinburgh which is part of an incredible craft coffee revolution in Scotland.

My closest friends have been made because of coffee shops. Heather overhead me talking with my friend Claudia in a Boulder, Colorado coffee shop about a recent trip to Afghanistan and leaned over to introduce herself and her own work in Congo. All three of us have been friends since!

Friends like Anna and Brendan were literally forged through mutual obsessions with the magic beans. One of my favorite friends is my old barista who welcomed me home from every trip from Afghanistan with smiles, hugs, and delicious espresso.

It was my last cortado in Colorado that pushed me to engage more fully on Patreon! And it was over a truly awful English instant brewed coffee (are these jars of brown crystals even coffee?) on my first day back in the UK with my oldest friend when I learned the phrase ‘bitch the pot’. An English phrase originally meant for tea but tea never inspired me to change the world. 

I am a self-funded social justice activist, humanitarian, artist, non-fiction writer, newbie filmmaker, and a single parent of a teenage wildlife conservation and climate justice fighter. Together we created Endangered Activism combining her passion for wildlife with my experience in activism and storytelling. I know people talk about Patreon being like a tip-jar, but I see your involvement as sharing coffee and brainstorming activism and art with people that give a shit.
