We will also be hosting our annual Lobby Day. Attendees will have the opportunity to drive forward the critical work of advocating for medical cannabis patients with U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, and their staff.
This year's conference theme is “No Patient Left Behind”. Despite growing medical cannabis access, patients still face significant barriers, and there are numerous actions both Congress and the Biden-Harris administration can and should take to save lives right now. Unity 21 will begin on April 29, corresponding to the end of the first 100 days of the new Biden administration.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sending out various action alerts that you can take from the comfort of your home to demand the Biden Harris administration and Congress take action to protect the most vulnerable patients among us. Take the pledge now to get involved and to get updates as the campaign unfolds.
This is an online conference and does not require travel or accommodations to attend. Just internet access.
We look forward to seeing you at Unity 21. For more information please contact [email protected].
