 Webinar:

The Next Episode: Making Marijuana a Movement for Black and Brown People

What we’ll cover: This panel will address the role of racial justice framing in marijuana decriminalization and legalization campaigns across the country with the aim of mobilizing attorneys and advocates to become involved in and lead drug reform campaigns that center racial and economic justice. Panelists will consider key questions, such as: has the silence from leading drug policy reformers on issues of race and economic justice affected the course of marijuana reform in our country, and if so, how? How does marijuana reform stand to impact black and brown communities? Should reform be “by any means necessary,” even if it further entrenches existing racist or capitalist legal structures? What will it take to lead a national drug reform campaign that does center racial and economic justice imperatives?
