Ripple was hired by Drug Policy Alliance to ensure that the positive impacts of marijuana legalization in Colorado get into the news. We received coverage in Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, ABC, FOX and more.
Impact: Social Justice
Everyone is affected by environmental hazards and corporate malice, but those with less money and power are often affected disproportionately. Ripple amplifies the voices of those who bear the brunt of injustice. One example is restaurant workers, who often earn less than minimum wage and lack paid sick days and health insurance. Ripple helped release a few reports on behalf of these workers, which lead directly to the introduction of the federal WAGES Act (related to the sub-minimum wages). Similar bills were introduced at the state and local levels in California, Illinois, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania.
