Kelly Perez, MSW is the co-CEO/founder of Cannabis Doing Good (formerly kindColorado), the co-founder of the Cannabis Impact Fund. Trademarked, Cannabis Social Responsibility (CSR), puts into action, purpose-driven cannabis partnerships to support racial equity/justice, positive community impact, and environmental sustainability. CSR helps to shift the cannabis narrative---from the War on Drugs, to a cultural sea change where opportunities are racially equitable, policy is just, communities benefit, and cannabis is a model of circular economics. She believes every cannabis company has the power to receive measurable ROI in the process of doing the right thing; purpose driven consumers vote with their dollars. Cannabis Impact Fund (501c3) brings a cannabis presence, and financial resources, to national anti-racism efforts, and supports homegrown cannabis racial justice efforts.
