What is END

The Emerald New Deal is an Oakland-based initiative to dedicate the 100% of Oakland’s Cannabis Tax Revenue to the individuals, families, and communities most impacted by the War on Drugs. A new Planning and Oversight Committee of majority formerly incarcerated Oakland residents would be in charge of a report and strategic investment plan to address the impacts of the War on Drugs. This strategic investment plan would detail a program to use the Cannabis Special Tax to rebuild the communities and neighborhoods that were most impacted.
