Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Women Making an Impact

December 13 | The Assemblage NoMad | 114 E 25th St, New York, NY  

Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Women Making an Impact cultivates a difficult and necessary dialogue surrounding the effects the War on Drugs has had on communities of color and supporting more womxn + POC to rise as well as help diversify the rapidly changing cannabis industry.

Humble Bloom Co-founder Solonje Burnett facilitated a conversation between Christine De La Rosa of The People's Dispensary, Mary Pryor of Cannaclusive, Lulu Tsui of REVEL + AMBR, and Sarah Remesch of New Highs270M + Viride.

Together they discussed ways to work towards a more inclusive and diverse cannabis industry shining light on some big questions:
* What are actions consumers can take to positively impact the industry?
* What do social equity or restorative justice programs look like?
* What can brands do to effect change ?

The evening began with a meditation by Liana Naima, who’s soft voice and strong drum sent sent loving vibrations across a myriad of consciousness.  Throughout the evening guests indulged in life’s pleasures. Relaxing and healing their selves with CBD thai bodywork by Danielle Espiritu and Thai Brooklyn, as well as discovering pieces to elevate their smoking rituals and wellness routines in our marketplace featuring local women-owned cannabis businesses through SHAWPoplar, and Terrestrial Roots. “Behind the Green Curtain” confessional debuted with Danniel Swatosh, a confessional space to share their resonating experiences with cannabis— medicinal or recreational— a healing experience or renewed sense of wellness, a passing of the peace pipe, comedic scene, revelation or elevation.
