Social Equity LA

In October 2018, Collective Strategies LA, a community economic and workforce development organization in Los Angeles, which supports minority and small businesses owners in key under-represented business sectors and industries identified the need to create a non-profit dedicated and committed to promoting fairness, justice, opportunity, and equity in the design and implementation of cannabis related public policy, enforcement, and the economic and workforce opportunities. As a result Social Equity LA was formed as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in May of 2019.  

Social Equity LA was created to promote Access, Inclusion, and Diversity. Through Social Equity LA, we have created an online and in-person network that provides free, accurate, and timely information on the Social Equity program and updates in the cannabis industry.
