It is crucial for us to pour our hearts and minds into enacting social justice, prioritizing the economic uplift of black and brown communities and businesses, and creating equity grant programs to amplify the voices of those most disenfranchised.
SugarTop would like to direct your attention to some amazing resources listed below.
NuLeaf Project’s work is specifically designed to address the capital, education, and connection hurdles that people of color face when entering the cannabis industry. The City of Portland is the first U.S. municipality to invest tax revenue from the legalized cannabis industry into the communities most negatively impacted by cannabis criminalization.
NuLeaf Project is funded in part by this historic initiative to rebalance the detrimental economic impacts of the war on drugs.
The Oregon Cannabis Association is a diverse group of cultivators, processors, retailers, entrepreneurs, and allied businesses. Our mission is to help one another thrive through networking events, educational workshops, and political representation.
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
"Imagine sitting in a cell for years, decades, or even for life, convicted of an activity that is no longer a crime, while thousands of other people build intergenerational wealth doing exactly the same thing. That is the situation that over 40,000 cannabis prisoners face today in the United States alone, while countless others languish in jails and prisons worldwide. The Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives, and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry."
