Send a Patient to Unity
We know that we get the best outcomes when medical cannabis patients have a voice in the conversation about policies that affect their lives. We need to have patients from all over the country at our National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference and Lobby Day in Washington, D.C.. Unfortunately, many patients with a lot to contribute to the national dialogue cannot afford the trip. That is where we need your help.
It takes approximately $1,500 to get a patient to the conference. Donors sponsored more than 100 patients from all across the country last year. Those patients learned about medical cannabis and advocacy skills at the conference, before participating in the largest medical cannabis lobby day in US history. We scheduled a total of 147 meetings for lobby day. 147 Opportunities for patients to speak their mind with their lawmakers.
We need to bring even more people to the conference and lobby day this year. With adult-use legalization being considered and the presidential election in full swing we need to make sure that patients have a seat at the table for forthcoming changes to cannabis policy.
Your donation of $1,500 (or more) will allow us to bring a deserving advocate to Washington D.C. and help us do just that. You can choose to designate your scholarship to a specific recipient or contribute to our fund to award to our most deserving applicants. Either way you will be supporting medical cannabis advocacy and helping change the minds of lawmakers.
To thank you for your generosity, you will:
- Receive a special thanks printed in our Unity 2020 program book.
- Be able to insert a flyer, postcard, a sample product, or other branded gifts in our conference tote
Thank you for supporting patients with your sponsorship of a National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference Scholarship!
We're also excited to announce that this scholarship, unlike our general scholarship fund, will cover the VIP registration for the Reception and Awards Dinner!
In order to accommodate the patients and meet our event schedule our deadline for patient sponsorship will be February 21st.
