Help CUP students investigate marijuana legalization!

Help CUP students investigate marijuana legalization!

Today, CUP is launching a fundraising campaign to help youth in Red Hook investigate the impacts of marijuana legalization. Will you join us in making this project happen?
In Spring 2021, New York State passed a law legalizing marijuana possession and distribution. Communities like Red Hook, where inequitable enforcement of drug laws has led to mass incarceration, are concerned about continuing to be penalized even after legalization. They are also concerned about losing out on the financial benefits that the law’s backers tout. How can the harm be repaired of communities targeted by marijuana criminalization and make sure they are involved in how the law is applied?

This summer CUP is partnering with students from the Red Hook Community Justice Center again, to take young people out of the classroom and into the city to ask — and answer — tough social justice questions about how the city works.

With your help, Red Hook youth will investigate the issue by interviewing a broad range of stakeholders and create a teaching tool that explains what they learned to their community and peers. Most importantly, young people will explore how the places where they live are products of decision-making, and how they can talk to decision-makers themselves and hold them accountable.

Act fast, the campaign ends on June 28th – click here to donate today and make this project a reality!
