Moving Cannabis Forward

MOVING THE INDUSTRY

Toward Equity

Our nonprofit advocates on behalf of the 19,938 full-time cannabis and hemp employees in the industry across the state of Oregon. We want to educate and empower workers to advocate for change – together.

Hemp Cannabis Work

Start the healing

Our goal is to support workers as they heal from toxic workplaces and recover a sense of control in their lives and jobs moving forward.

Oregon Pro Se Expungement

Learn how you can expunge your own eligible cannabis convictions with the Oregon Courts.

HOW CAN WE

Diversify the Cannabis Industry?

Start by hiring more Black and Brown people.

No, really.

We advocate to remove barriers of entry for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, and other non-white people of color.

If you are looking to get started in the industry or are committing to a more diverse team, we are here to help.

Support the Workers

HOW CAN WE

Maintain a Safe Work Environment?

The Industry isn’t as young as it used to be and while others are still getting started, we can set the pace by establishing a collective standard of how employees should be treated. Our goal is to work directly with employers to establish fair practices and opportunities for advancement in the cannabis industry.

HOW CAN WE

Make Lasting Change?

At our heart we are a 501(c)4 Non-profit Social Welfare Group. This means, we are able to demand change on a legislative level as well as a local one. With your direct feedback on industry hot topics, we will be able to unite around causes and help influence decisions from the workers’ point of view.

RECENT STORIES

We’re Taking Action

Has your employer or your peers made you feel uncomfortable while at the workplace? There’s a clear need for a documentation process that enables those most impacted to be able to track incidents in a trusted manner. The Cannabis Workers Coalition is building a rapid response system that combines reporting and tracking of acts and providing the support and protection our communities need in this uncertain era.
