will use Ashawna's gift to strengthen its movement-building efforts. "Ashawna was generous to DPA in her lifetime and beyond because she wanted to build the strongest movement possible to end the drug war and replace it with policies that promote her values of freedom and compassion," said Ethan Nadelmann, DPA's executive director. "We're honored by this bequest, and we will use it to sustain and strengthen the aspects of the movement that were important to her."
"Our budget this year is only $5 million, so this bequest is turbocharging our efforts to end marijuana prohibition in the United States," said Rob Kampia, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, D.C. "In fact, Ashawna will likely be our biggest donor this year, and we'll be using half of her gift to pass the ballot initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol in Colorado on November 6."
"This transformative gift from Ashawna will help to ensure that everyone in our community who needs a meal can get one," said Kathy Jackson, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. "She accomplished so much both in her professional life and through her philanthropy, and we are honored that she put her trust in Second Harvest Food Bank with this legacy gift."
