Tea Pad Will be Back in Washington, DC May 21, 2020!
Tea Pad is a networking group for the cannabis industry and cannabis industry curious. Its mission is to break down barriers to entry into the cannabis industry and to empower participation - no matter race or gender - via education.
Proceeds of Tea Pads fund the Tea Pad Scholarship for Minority Entrepreneurship. Scholarship funds will be distributed twice a year to student providing financial resources in order to learn skills necessary to become a leader, an innovator and an entrepreneur.
The "tea pad" is part of a very rich history of cannabis (marijuana) in the African-American community in New York City and the jazz scene of the 1920's and 30's . It was a dynamic time in American history.
Women of all color got the right to vote in 1920.
And, during this time the United States government launched an aggressive campaign of
marijuana prohibition, which had catastrophic impact on black and brown communities for decades to come.
Tea pads were convivial speakeasy style spaces where people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds could
come together free from the violence of prohibition.
Live jazz , plentiful libations, good eats & a convivial atmosphere are always enjoyed by all!
"It isn't where you came from; it's where you're going that counts."
- Ella Fitzgerald
