Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday

 

Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday, the largest day of philanthropy across the country. We wanted to uplift all of the amazing things we’ve been able to accomplish together in the past year and a half.

We could not have done any of this without you all. The majority of our support has come from small donors, small businesses and committed groups who share our vision to end mass incarceration.

2022 will undoubtedly be hard work. Our direct service and advocacy will continue and we plan to expand across the state.

Breaking barriers to our injustice systems requires all hands on deck. This problem affects all Virginians.

Creating Cannabis Equity in Virginia

Columbia Care Partnership Announcement

Local Cannabis Organizations Unite to Educate, Support and Provide Access to Cannabis-Related Services and Opportunities for BIPOC Communities

Today Columbia Care Virginia announced it is partnering with three organizations – BIPOCANN, the Virginia Minority Cannabis Coalition and Nolef Turns – to offer social equity-driven resources   for the developing cannabis community in Virginia. This group is dedicated to ensuring that Virginia’s BIPOC community has viable, competitive opportunities in the market, and supports three elements critical to effective social equity initiatives — justice reform, entrepreneurship and mentorship, and equitable representation.

Nolef Turns’ goals are to center people in the cannabis conversation. Social equity is about more than profit; it’s about addressing the past harms of the failed war on drugs. We are thankful for this partnership to push education about your rights as it pertains to cannabis and to continue to advocate for justice reform for people impacted by prohibition and mass incarceration.
