The recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd have highlighted the pain in our Black communities that has been ongoing for hundreds of years in the United States. We can no longer afford to be silent.
Cannabis Creative stands with our Black brothers and sisters. We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
Being actively anti-racist and showing true allyship requires a commitment to change from the inside. As we look within ourselves and our company, Cannabis Creative will:
✊???? Reaffirm our efforts to build diverse teams and shape an inclusive culture across all levels of leadership
✊???? Dedicate areas of our marketing and social media to amplify BIPOC voices and businesses (like this list we put together)
✊???? Implement diversity and anti-racism team trainings to build a framework of actionable steps toward a more inclusive company culture
While we believe long-term action is also needed, in the short-term, we have donated towards The Equal Justice Initiative, The Bail Project, and the NAACP. We will also be donating professional marketing service hours towards this movement within the next twelve months. More details coming soon.
As we work diligently to play our part in sustaining this movement, we encourage you to do so as well. We have put together a guide of ways that you can support the Black Lives Matter movement so you can join us in standing up for Black lives.
