NuLeaf Project’s goal is to increase success outcomes for people of color in cannabis either as business owners or high-earning professionals. NuLeaf’s work is specifically designed to address the capital, education, and connection hurdles that people of color face when entering the cannabis industry. NuLeaf Project does this by granting funds to cannabis businesses, educating and upskilling cannabis entrepreneurs, and creating career pipelines for cannabis professionals with priority given to African Americans, the community disproportionately targeted by cannabis criminalization. NuLeaf is a non-profit supported primarily by the City of Portland’s historic reinvestment (the first city to ever do so) of cannabis tax revenue into the communities most negatively impacted by the war on drugs.
