HERBAL JUSTICE

EQUITY - AUTONOMY - ACCESS

HERBAL JUSTICE

Indigenous peoples have been using plants for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Plants and people are intrinsically connected and are an important source of nutrition as they play a key role in our health & wellness. Medicinal herbs or plants have been known to be an important source of therapeutic spiritual and curative aids. They are part of a system that harnesses the way of life of all Indigenous Peoples and thus are gems within our natural resources.

In our diaspora throughout the 'Americas' how do we create autonomy and self-determination of these natural resources? How do we enterprise and trade our herbal medicine? How do we position and structure our botanical resources as a socio-economic catalyst to enrich and protect our communities?

To canvas all of this and more join us for another one of our monthly 'Bridging The Gap Series'. In this series aptly named, Herbal Justice we explore with our panelists the importance of safeguarding indigenous herbal medicines and practices. If lost on future generations these inputs may be irreplaceable despite recent trends, technological and cultural appropriation and a booming monopoly.

GANJA JUSTICE

‘Cannabis Laws, Our Civil Rights & How It Affects Us’

THIS EVENT IS HELD & INTENDED EXCLUSIVELY  FOR AFRO INDIGENOUS POC  TO ADEQUATELY ADDRESS ISSUES AFFECTING OUR COMMUNITIES.


Join us for another dynamic & informative evening on the changing atmosphere around cannabis laws, our civil rights, how it affects our health, wealth and economic base as diverse indigenous communities and individuals. There is great disparity in equity not only around cannabis laws but our current plight and need for autonomy in access, production, process, enterprise and regulation of indigenous sacrament and traditional medicines. We assess models of sovereignty or an addition of a 3rd tier of regulation towards inclusion and adoption of a structure that capacitates values that benefit all Ontarian’s and Canadians to answer these concerns.

We are hoping that by discussing these concerns we will have a better understanding of what we are seeking as a community and how we may go about claiming these civil rights and liberties in a legal manner.

Doors Open 6:00pm: | Mix 'n' Mingle | Network | Food & Entertainment

Libation By | 7:00PM

Discussion Begins | 8:00pm Sharp!

Location: Paintbox Bistro | 555 Dundas St E, Toronto
