Event description

Description

WHO WE ARE:

The Diasporic Alliance for Cannabis Opportunities was formed to help reduce the stigma and introduce cannabis opportunities to many marginalized communities. We aim to open the dialogue for opportunities in education, wellness, social justice, policy, entrepreneurship and workforce development.

The 2018 Cannabis Opportunities Conference (COC) is a platform to bring cannabis experts and community stakeholders together to learn about trends in the emerging cannabis industry. The COC aims to include topics, job fair, vendors, exhibitors and speakers that are relevant to helping to educate and empower marginalized communities.

This conference is the first of its kind and will certainly make history! Our confirmed speakers include Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Pennsylvania Senator Sharif Street, renowned national / international speakers and many more.

WHY WE DO IT:

The cannabis industry is rapidly growing to create economic opportunities but, less than 20% of all business owners and employees are non-white (Asian, African-Americans, Latinx, Other). Due to over 80 years of criminalization, many are unaware of any economic benefits or how to access medicines that could help their qualifying conditions.

As more states become legalized with medical and adult use, we will open a platform for professional speakers to introduce trending cannabis topics to a diverse community of B;ack adn Brown families. The conference will be free for attendees and materials will be bilingual (English/Spanish) as much as possible for attendees.
