Transparency

Barbari was founded with the vision of inclusivity and social equity from the very beginning. From collaborations with artists and makers to suppliers and partnerships, every choice at Barbari is made with social equity in mind. We actively seek out partnerships with BIPOC, womxn, and LGBTQ+, creatives, vendors, and contractors. We selectively partnered with investors who are either BIPOC or prioritized equity and impact-based founders. Here are some of the actions we’ve taken as a business to walk the walk:

* * *

Since our launch in October 2017, 5% of our revenue has contributed to organizations including Planned Parenthood, Fierce NYC, and most recently Family Preservation Project. 

* * *

Sponsored 3 OLCC Marijuana Handlers Permits for BIPOC, Queer people, which enables them to work in the industry for 5 years.

* * *

We’ve spent the majority of our event sponsorship and marketing funds with companies and groups that align with our shared social values–prioritizing womxn and BIPOC partners whenever possible.

* * *

Since May, we’ve contributed $1000 to the BLM movement through donations to bail funds, meal providers, Black-owned organizations, and direct contributions to individuals. This is in addition to the 5% revenue share.
