Cannabis Social Equity

What is it? AND - Why is this important?

Social Equity means that personal or social circumstances such as gender, ethnic origin or family background, are not obstacles to achieving potential (definition of fairness) and that all individuals reach (or have) at least a basic minimum level of opportunity (definition of inclusion).

Incarceration Statistics are skewed because the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports do not track ethnicity & arrests of Latinx people are mis-categorized as arrests of white people.

In the United States,

race and ethnicity are among the most powerful and durable axes along which inequality is organized.

The black-white gap has long been the most striking. Due to persistent inequalities in opportunity and discrimination, whites see better outcomes than black on most social and economic indicators: black Americans make roughly half the income of whites, are unemployed at nearly twice the rate, are roughly half as likely to own a home, and twice as likely to live in poverty. Long-standing inequalities have also led to deep differences between whites and non-whites in perceptions of the degree and meaning of discrimination and inequality. A 2016 Pew report showed that whites are roughly half as likely as blacks to perceive discrimination against African Americans by the police, in the courts, in the workplace, or in the voting booth. While these differences remain the most striking, whites also lead other racial and ethnic minorities in access to opportunity and in socioeconomic outcomes.

“If disparities of participation and influence become further entrenched—and if average citizens give up on democratic government—unequal citizenship could take on a life of its own, weakening American democracy for a long time to come.”
