Plan for Positive Impact

Despite marijuana law reforms, there are still more arrests for cannabis possession each year than for all violent crimes combined. Communities of color are subject to disproportionate marijuana enforcement practices. Many affected individuals lack the knowledge or financial resources to seek relief through clemency and/or expungement.
Provide annual financial support for programs that benefit Massachusetts residents who have past drug convictions such as The Last Prisoner Project.
Provide Equity Services for economic empowerment applicants and social equity program participants, who may be seeking pro bono or reduced rate services.
