CCIE Showcase


On May 29th, our inaugural class of CCIE students hosted their first Showcase.  Students presented their projects and work that that they have been doing all year.  We also heard from a student panel, about their growths, obstacles, and how all students in Chicago should have the opportunity to be part of CCIE.

Thank you to all of our wonderful guests for coming out to support CCIE, as well as ALL OF OUR AMAZING PARTNERS - for all of their support this year!!!

Pictured below is Prentice Brown, founder of Black Strain, speaking to our guests on how he has created a consulting firm that is transforming the inequitable system that disproportionately targets and incarcerates black youth for marijuana possession, while rewarding white dispensary owners.
