Exciting updates about Denver's N.E.W. event.
We are proud to announce that Denver Relief's 2019 National Expungement Week event will be held at CrossPurpose in Denver. This location offers free career and community development programs making it the perfect environment for life changing moves!
The clinic will offer free criminal record-sealing services, voter registration and information about employment and licensing opportunities in the industry.
Over 40 lawyers and law students have volunteered to participate in a record-sealing training before the event and many are offering their time and services ongoing. We have a robust outreach plan to reach those who qualify. All we need is the financial support of cannabis businesses that believe in an equitable and just industry to help repair the harm done by the failed drug war.
The need for legal and financial help still exist for those with seal-able criminal records even though increased eligibility for criminal record sealing passed this last session. The bill still requires the defendant to petition for themselves when there is a criminal conviction.

We are pleased be a part of the supporters along with: Vicente Sederberg, InfluentialX, kindColorado, A. Moffitt Law, eCS Consulting and Verra Wellness. New supporters of the event this year are Kush&Canvas, Cannabis Law League and Maureen Cain, recipient of the 2019 Rupert-Tate Game Changer Award for her contribution to criminal justice reform.
We hope you join us in this important work. Please help and help us spread the word by printing or sharing the flyer.
The War on Drugs has devastated communities and left over 70 million people in the U.S. with criminal records that prevent them from working, going to school, voting and receiving other vital services.
To repair these harms, a network of advocates created National Expungement Week (N.E.W) in October 2018 to provide legal relief and galvanize support for clean slate legislation.
This year, we are hosting Denver’s 2nd annual N.E.W. on Saturday, September 21st 2019. These record sealing events will help people who have been impacted by the criminal justice system to begin restoring access to jobs, housing, the right to vote and more.
N.E.W. is a joint project of Equity First Alliance and Cage-Free Repair. Visit www.offtherecord.us for more info on the 30+ cities participating in 2019 #NationalExpungementWeek from 9/21 - 9/28.
Denver N.E.W. organizers are local industry advocates: Rosalie Flores (Tierra de Flores), Ebony Miller (eCS Consulting), Melanie Rose Rodgers (Influential X) and Sarah Amelia Woodson (Kush & Canvases) Email: email@example.com for questions
We are writing today to all our contacts to share information about the upcoming 4th Annual Cannabis Symposium & Silent Disco After-Party at Tilt! Pinball in Louisville.
For the last couple of years Colorado NORML has been sponsoring this Cannabis event.
The Cannabis Symposium is a unique event, unlike most you have seen. It is neither an industry celebration or a 420 party but an event designed to be an educational and informative Conversation between Community and the Industry.
Topics have ranged from the Legitimization of the Industry, Regulations, and Product Usage. Attendance has been positive and discussions lively. You can see all three at youtube.com/yellowscenemag
After each event, most people feel a sense of exhilaration by the end, often telling Yellow Scene Magazine it is the best Cannabis event they have attended. There had been one gentleman visiting from Russia tell us; “It’s not just Boulder County that is interested, it is the world.” Goal is to reach people who are ardent supporters to the curious.
This year there will be discussions on Sustainability and Social Responsibility. We believe this plant can be an instrumental force in not just changing, but helping save the world.
Michael Dougherty, Boulder County District Attorney, will be discussing the social responsibility the government has regarding the plant.
Judy Daniels a PhD in Soil Science will be discussing sustainable growing. While she specializes in the Cannabis industry, her knowledge can be transferred to a more sustainable planet in all food production.
Elizabeth Knight of Co Hemp Co will be discussing all the things hemp can and should be doing more sustainability than current market options.
Carl Lehrburger, Cofounder of PureHemp Technology LLC, Purevision Technology will speak to us what it takes to get our system converted to bio-refining technologies and what the hold-ups are.
We are excited to be a sponsor alongside these other great organizations: Elements Boulder, Natures Root, Post-Net of Lafayette, No-CO Hemp, CO Norml, National Cannabis Industry Association and Big Little Sound who will be providing the Silent Disco After Party fun. Steve’s Goods, Ajoya Life, LucidMood and Mountain Mud Sunscreen have already signed up for one of the 2 booths we have remaining.
Congressman Ed Perlmutter; Colorado's 7th District Representative and sponsor of the SAFE Banking Act will be discussing this bill. Please join us! There will be a Q&A, Food & Drinks!
