Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Women Making an Impact

July 26 | Lucas Lucas | Williamsburg, NY 
Hosted by Shaw. BK and Lucas Lucas

Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Women Making an Impact cultivated a difficult and necessary dialogue surrounding the effects the War on Drugs has had on communities of color and supporting more woman + POC  to rise in the industry. The evening began with a grounding meditation to launch a facilitated discussion surrounding the war on drugs, incarceration reform and the women pushing their way into an industry that is rapidly changing.

Post panel attendees enjoyed live music, CBD cocktails, CBD massage, marketplace featuring local women-owned cannabis businesses, and a raffle raising funds for the Drug Policy Alliance. 

Lucas Lucas is an all-inclusive gallery and concept space rooted in social impact.

Testimonials

“Working with Solonje & Humble Bloom’s involvement in ‘Breaking the Grass Ceiling’ really helped to cultivate a safe space for elevated open dialogue around race, gender, politics and social responsibility and how they relate to the cannabis industry. These are not easy topics to cover without triggering some serious emotions, but starting with a reiki (sound) meditation to put everybody in the right mind set was genius; it really set the right tone & allowed for controversial topics to be discussed from a place of love and with the intention of progress. ”

“I was introduced to Maya Shaw by a good friend and decided to collaborate on an event at the gallery to celebrate the launch of Shaw. BK. Serendipitously having heard of the soon-to-be launch of Humble Bloom by my good friend Solonje, and experiencing first-hand the immense talent, smarts and heart that the woman-force lives by, we knew she’d be the perfect moderator for a panel discussion. The discussion was powerful, filled with love, addressed injustices and was solution-driven. ”

“Absolutely incredible. The team at Humble Bloom truly knows how to throw a thoughtful and momentous event. I was blown away by the talent of these two awesome ladies. Breaking the Grass Ceiling was hands down one of THE best cannabis events that I’ve ever been to on either the East or West coast. The energy was amazing. The space was amazing. The panelists were AMAZING. Thank YOU, Solie and Danniel, for creating such a safe, beautiful space for the community to come together to support the plant and one another.”

“Oftentimes cannabis events revolve around the cis straight white male perspective and it’s quite tiring, but finally the focus at Breaking The Grass Ceiling was on women and specifically women of color. As a community, cannabis professionals need to get behind the message (and action) of repealing cannabis prohibition for more than economical and personal reasons that such events tend to focus on.”
— DANIELLE GUERCIO | WRITER + ARTIST
“Educating people about the powers of Cannabis is a grand responsibility. Humble Bloom has done a great job taking on this challenge! We were very happy to see so many new faces, at the launch event, all eager to learn more. We wholeheartedly support Humble Bloom’s Mission and are excited to see its positive impact!”
