EBONY Magazine’s Juneteenth Opportunity Summit June 20, 10a-12a EDT

(HARLEM – June 20, 2020) – Since 1945, EBONY Magazine has shined a spotlight on Black people in America worldwide. Ebony’s commitment to showcasing the best and brightest as well as highlighting disparities in black life has been, and will always be the cornerstone to EBONY. This year, EBONY will celebrate 75 years of serving the Black Community with a year-long series of celebrations highlighting the rich history of the EBONY brand. EBONY 75 will be all about honoring the brand-past, present, and future- and we look forward to you joining the celebration.

Saturday 20th, EBONY Juneteenth Weekend Opportunity Cannabis Summit aims to bring together a community of experts, scientists, activists, entrepreneurs, and therapeutic supporters together for a day of advocacy, education, and empowerment. Taking place on June 20th, Cannabis Day will encompass topics ranging from medicine, economics, queer culture, veteran issues, culture, activism, lifestyle, innovation, cannabis industry updates, and so much more.

June 20th’s Cannabis Day will feature guest speakers including industry pioneer and Dr. Dre’s former ‘weed man,’ California Cannabis‘s own Virgil Grant; The Original ‘Canna-Mom,’ International Healthcare and Autism Advocate, CannaSafe Labs Healthcare Liaison, Mieko Hester-Perez; the youngest black multi-state operator with dispensaries in Oregon, Massachusetts (and soon Chicago), CEO of Elev8 Cannabis, Seun Adedeji; AND SO MANY MORE…
The Black Community has been fighting for decriminalization and legalization of cannabis for decades. Now is the time to take action and host real-time conversations and demand change in America!

We will bring together a community of diverse thought leaders and experts to share positive messaging and inspiring stories to empower future advocacy and investment.

In 2019, the cannabis industry generated over $15 billion in sales. The state of the cannabis industry is changing as new medical innovation emerges. How can we become more active and compete?

Join some of the strongest and most vocal leaders in the movement in an effort to ENTERTAIN, EDUCATE, AND ELEVATE BIPOC communities worldwide on a long misunderstood and miscategorized plant that’s sweeping the world by storm.

We’re in this fight together. Let’s now collectively rise to the occasion and break free of the stigmas forced upon us by past oppression. Let us lead the way in the cannabis industry going forward as more than just consumers… but as advocates, educators, business owners.

An agricultural revolution is underway. The time is NOW.
