Justice is a priority for Eaze and its partners.
Eaze is kicking off a first-of-its kind partnership with Code for America to help clear 250,000 criminal records by donating $4.20 for each delivery this 4/20.
The donation (up to $100,000) will go toward Code for America’s “Justice at Scale” campaign, the organization’s first-ever contribution from the cannabis industry. Eaze and Code for America will also explore ways the company can provide engineering support to clear millions of low-level records across the United States.
Code for America has created a tool that enables governments to scan criminal records for eligibility for thousands of convictions in a matter of minutes. The org is focused on helping millions of people nationally get a fresh start.
“The legal cannabis market must address the effects of the War on Drugs,” said Eaze’s Director of Social Impact Jennifer Lujan. “4/20 is not just about celebration but also an opportunity to bring attention to the injustices. Supporting Code for America has an immediate effect on helping repair. It’s just one way Eaze is working to create an equitable and sustainable industry.”
With a week full of promotions leading up to 4/20, Eaze consumers now have the ability to support record clearance directly with their purchasing decisions.
Eaze’s social impact efforts include partnerships with Oakland’s Hood Incubator and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, $1 million to support the Bay Area’s cannabis industry, and an ongoing 25% discount for all U.S. veterans.
