WASHINGTON: Avitas, a leading cannabis producer/processor located in the Pacific Northwest, has announced the release of a new oil blend created just for Pride, Unicorn Glitter that is full of double rainbows, unicorn laughs, glitter hearts, and of course, love. All throughout June, Avitas is donating a percentage of Unicorn Glitter to Equal Rights Washington and Basic Rights Oregon, two organizations doing important work for the rights and well-being of the LGBTQ community in Washington and Oregon.
“Avitas is a company dedicated to making the world a better, happier place and part of that is ensuring equal rights for all,” said Adam Smith, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Avitas. He continues, “We’re thrilled to be able to support these great organizations with an oil blend that honors both the spirit of independence and joy that Pride embodies.”
Equal Rights Washington is an organization devoted to ensuring and promoting the dignity, safety, and equality for all LGBTQ Washingtonians. Their work began with the fight for LGBTQ non-discrimination protections in 2006, domestic partnerships in 2009, marriage equality in 2012, trans healthcare in 2015, and a statewide ban on conversion therapy for minors in 2018.
Through 22 years of dedicated work, Basic Rights Oregon has strengthened nondiscrimination laws, created safer schools, increased access to transgender-inclusive health care, banned so-called conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth and won the freedom to marry. Today, more than 150,000 volunteers and donors support Basic Rights’ LGBTQ pro-equality efforts.
