The mission of The Hood Incubator is to increase the participation of Black and Brown communities in the legal cannabis industry- as investors, owners, workers, patients, consumers, and advocates.
To achieve our mission, we organize our work into 3 areas:
We ENGAGE Black and Brown communities so we can recognize the power and economic opportunity we have in this moment, and to foster a sense of community that heals the isolation and stigma we have experienced as a result of the War on Drugs.
We EDUCATE and MOBILIZE the Black & Brown cannabis community to fight for progressive marijuana policy that addresses the needs and interests of communities most harmed by the War on Drugs.
We work to EMPOWER Black & Brown community members to thrive as workers, owners and investors in the new cannabis business economy.
