Celebrating Black History Month with Trulieve African American ERG

Celebrating Black History Month

Celebrating Black Excellence

Our National Partners of the Month include Minorities for Medical Marijuana​ (M4MM) and Project GOO (Giving Opportunities to Others) and the Sickle Cell Consortium.

Together with M4MM, we are investing in Black owned business growth through a Supplier Diversity Summit on February 11. With a focus on Certification Education,​ attendees will be ancillary businesses already in the cannabis space who are hoping to get certified to operate. Later in the year in June we will also be working with the organization to support internships and HBCU scholarships.

Partnering with Project GOO, Trulieve is sponsoring quarterly food drives and distribution in Tallahassee, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Boston​. We will be hosting our first food drive in Tallahassee during FAMU’s Annual Harambee Festival​ on February 25.

Trulieve will join Students for Sensible Drug Policy in a fireside chat highlighting the success of the first HBCU Ambassador cohort in creating actionable change in their community. Stay tuned to Trulieve channels for updates on how SSDP and Trulieve are “Celebrating the Future” by bringing responsible education and civic engagement training to HBCU campuses across the country.

In Arizona, The Black Philanthropy Initiative (BPI) is hosting the Let's Make History Together Gala​ on February 18 with Trulieve as a participant. Held at the Chandler Center for the Arts, this gala will feature black history, community presentations, amazing musical guests, and an opportunity to connect with top business, political, and community leaders from around the state.

The Sickle Cell Community Consortium ​and Trulieve’s own Medical Director Dr. Troutt will host a two-part Town Hall with a focus on education and robust Q&A. Trulieve will also be presenting at the Sickle Cell Consortium Leadership Summit in March.

​Trulieve’s Internal Programming organized by the African American ERG will focus on “Black Excellence in the Past, Present, and Future​.” Throughout the month, internal messages are linking to digital art exhibits around Black Resistance: A Journey to Equality, plus a Trivia Game Night each Thursday in February​.

For Trulieve team members and patients in our communities, our shared outreach and volunteerism focus will be on providing increased access to food, health care services, and community resources​ in the areas which we serve.
