Rise Up™: Marley Natural Gives Back to Oregon
In the spirit of giving back both to Jamaica and to communities that
have been harmed by cannabis prohibition, Marley Natural has
created a social impact initiative called Rise Up. Rise Up
funds a series of carefully curated projects that reflect Bob’s vision
for an inclusive and compassionate community where people take care of
each other and the environment.
In Oregon, Marley Natural has partnered with the Minority
Cannabis Business Association (MCBA), the first non-profit
organization created specifically to progress the cannabis industry by
increasing diversity. Marley Natural’s partnership with the MCBA
will create a Rise Up Expungement Day to help men
and women who have been convicted of non-violent cannabis related
offenses file a motion to set aside felony and non-felony arrests or
conviction charges that qualify for expungement. Learn more about Rise
Up Expungement Day at http://www.minoritycannabis.org/expungement-day.html.
In Jamaica, Rise Up is funding projects with four organizations
across the island, each dedicated to empowering local farmers, fishers,
and entrepreneurs: Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary, Farm Up Jamaica,
Golden Valley Farmer’s Group and Occupy Pinnacle. In California, Rise
Up has partnered with Defy Ventures, an entrepreneurship,
employment, and character development training program for currently and
formerly incarcerated men, women, and youth.
Marley Natural’s commitment to giving back to Jamaica and
communities harmed by prohibition through Rise Up will grow in
scale and scope as we expand our operations globally.
