As the momentum for cannabis legalization grows, social equity continues to be a key issue for the industry and politics on both sides of the aisle.

The Cannabis Regulators of Color Coalition (CRCC) seeks to help repair this damage by educating political leaders on cannabis and the business ecosystem and guiding revisions of the SAFE Banking Act, proposed legislation facilitating financial services in the United States cannabis industry.
