Let Richardson Race
Colorado NORML has partnered with MoveOn.org to gather in support of Sha'Carri Richardson.
Consumption of cannabis in a legal state shouldn't lead to consequences like disqualification from the Olympics - or losing your job. Employee protection is one of Colorado NORML's top priorities, and we hope to run a bill on this topic during the 2022 legislative session.
We are looking for volunteers who will wear orange vests and monitor the finish line as the "Sergeant of Arms" of the event. We are also looking for volunteers who would like to hand out petitions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Sha’Carri Richardson is one of the fastest athletes in the world—and would have a real chance of winning the 100-meter sprint in the Summer Olympics this month. But due to an outdated and arbitrarily enforced rule around marijuana, she's now going to be kept from competing on the world stage.
With over 580k signatures, we are pivoting to putting pressure on decision-makers (the USADA and IOC) to revoke the suspension of Sha’Carri Richardson, remove THC/marijuana from the banned substances list, and pivot to a broader push for federal legalization.
Join us Thursday at 3:30 p.m., when we will #RunforShaCarri for one mile up to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for a rally followed by a petition delivery. Don't like running? No problem! Just meet us at 4:00 p.m. at the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency!
3:30 pm - Race begins at the top of trailhead by Costco
4:05 pm - Speakers at the finish line, the US Anti-Doping Agency
Sign MoveOn's petition here or at the finish line.
