Social Justice Program

The Oregon Cannabis Association emphatically acknowledges that the war on drugs has disproportionately impacted communities of color. The OCA is committed to supporting impacted communities through our membership, programming, legislative changes, and criminal justice reform.

We Stand Against Racism

We challenge power structures that seek to deny Black people to be seen, heard and simply live.

Recognizing institutional racism is key to our survival and we cannot remain silent. We pledge to fight for justice. We will amplify those that are silenced, support where it is needed, and step aside when the story is not ours to tell.

Here are some places to lend your support and donate your resources.

Expungement

With the implementation of SB 420 and an expedited process for expunging marijuana crimes, the Oregon Cannabis Association is launching a year long program to host free expungement clinics to help people clear their records.

EXPUNGEMENT CLINIC & JOB FAIR

Locations in Portland and White City, Oregon 

Event RSVP Link

The Oregon Cannabis Association is proudly bringing back our expungement program, in partnership with PCC’s CLEAR (Community Legal & Educational Access & Referral) Clinic. This program will offer free monthly clinics around the state to seal records: helping folks access to employment, housing, and other services.

Along with the expungement clinic, a virtual job fair will be available for candidates to meet with potential employers and get help with resume prep and other job coaching.
