Cannabroad Bay Area Women's March — 2018

Happy New Years Cannabroads — ready for the Women's March this Saturday? We're meeting at Arlequin Cafe & Food To Go at 10:45 am and heading to the March at 11:15. Please see the map posted below if you can't get here by then and we'll try and make our way to the row of trees indicated on the map. Cell phone reception will be nil, so let's try and rally early. This guest list is a work in progress and yes, boys are welcome!. We are sure we are missing some awesome people, so please fill in the list. Namaste! In case of emergency, DM me on FB — Carolyn Gerin and we'll stay in close contact to give you our coordinates. 

This page is focused on aggregating Bay Area Women in Cannabis (+ friends, family, colleagues, co-workers) to march together 'to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all + to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year.' To add a cherry on top to the main March, WE work in the cannabis industry and every day is the resistance for most of us. We are #resistersisters, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, sons and daughters, friends and colleagues and our voices will be heard. 

"On January 20, 2018, Women's March San Francisco will unite along with multiple other cities in California (and other states) This rally is designed to engage and empower all people to support women's rights, human rights, civil rights, disability rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers rights, immigrant rights, reproductive, social and environmental justice. Our feminism must be intersectional and we must continue to organize as such. We want to encourage participation in 2018 midterm elections:# HearOurVote

WHEN? 
Saturday, January 20th at 11:30 AM to Rally at Civic Center Plaza and then March at 2 PM down Market Street to the Embarcadero (1.7 miles )

WHY? With a focus on the importance of elections, "Hear Our Vote" is the theme for Women’s March California in 2018, and centers on five levels of action:
• Voter Registration
• Voter Turnout
• Organize Locally
• Increasing women in office (especially women of color)
• Electing progressive women and allies
Only 54 percent of women in California are registered to vote, which is in the bottom third of U.S. states) and of that group only 45 percent turned out to vote in the 2016 election.
The January 20, 2018 March in San Francisco will be one part of many worldwide weekend events honoring the movement that brought out 5 million marchers on January 21, 2017, in what is considered the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history.

Keep the Feds Off Our Meds SF Rally and Protest

In a memo, U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions indicated he would victimize cannabis patients and cause public safety hazards by rolling back an Obama-era hands-off policy when it comes to state legal cannabis. 

In the Northern District of California, the U.S. Attorney just stepped down and we now wait for Sessions to hand pick his successor.

But the voters have spoken and cannabis is legal in California. 

Please join us and ASA chapters and allied groups in solidarity across the nation in protesting this gross overstep outside of Phillip Burton Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Ave. 

Nobody has the right to circumvent the will of the voting people, least of all law enforcement!

Say No To The Drug War Troll
Stand Up To Sessions, Cannabis Is Medicine
We Are Cannabis Strong. Sessions Is Just Plain Wrong

Oaksterdam University Graduation Ceremony & 10 Year Anniversary Celebration

It’s OU’s official 10-year anniversary cultivating leaders and providing education for the cannabis industry. Unofficially it’s been over 20 years since the Oaksterdam community and its leaders provided a safe place to medicate and educate in the area.
Oaksterdam University as well as the community, endured a lot over the past 20 years fighting for cannabis rights and freedoms. Activists, entrepreneurs, students, faculty and citizens have protested, progressed and now – years later – are starting to prosper in an industry we weren’t sure would exist. That is why it is so important that we celebrate this joint success this November 18th right here in the heart of Oaksterdam and directly across from beautiful Lake Merritt.
