Howard Schultz used his long tenure as CEO of coffee king Starbucks to speak out about economic advancement for workers.

Now, as Starbucks’ executive chairman and out of the daily management of the company, he’s still pushing the American Dream — and he’s added media producer to his many roles.

Starbucks recently rolled out the second season of its Upstanders documentary series. The first season debuted last September.

The 11 new episodes, written and produced by Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran, an executive producer at Starbucks and former Washington Post editor, focus on inspirational profiles of every day Americans.

Some examples:

A teenager facing life in prison who called the woman he shot to apologize — and formed a friendship with her in the process.

A woman in the Mormon-dominated city of Provo, Utah who created a community center for gay teens.

A chef who quit his job at a popular Dallas restaurant to open an eatery that mostly employs ex-juvenile detention inmates.
