Los Angeles (April 2021): To celebrate cannabis pride, Gritty In Pink is hosting a virtual
Livestream this 4/20 with an abundance of weed-loving female artists and partners. The
community, which is on a mission to achieve gender equity in the music industry, will
host the GRL Instagram Live Fundraiser for Americans for Safe Access on Tuesday,
April 20 at 7 p.m. PST/10 p.m. EST. The show is sponsored by Drew Martin, Jane
West, Kanha, Owl’s Brew, Pitfire Pizza, and Guitar Girl Magazine.
Gritty In Pink is thrilled to say “high” to talented artists Hoity-Toity, Sarah of
Transviolet, Madison Deaver, Linh Le of Bad Cop Bad Cop and Bodacious Thang.
The show will be hosted by Shiragirl with house band musicians Alex Windsor and
Jeannette Lawler. Women’s cannabis activist/entrepreneur Jane West will also be
making an appearance to talk about being a woman in the weed business.
Since last year’s Gritty In Pink 420 Special, cannabis has been decriminalized or
legalized in Virginia, Vermont, Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, South Dakota,
Mississippi, New York and New Mexico. The movement continues to gain momentum,
as politics catch up with society’s demand for legalization across the nation.
Gritty In Pink has joined the revolution to destigmatize the use of marijuana, and it is
proud to spread awareness about such an impactful organization. Americans For Safe
Access is the largest national organization promoting safe and legal access to cannabis
for therapeutic use and research, with over 150,000 supporters in all 50 states.
Debbie Churgai, executive director of ASA, says, “Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is
honored to partner up with such an amazing organization working towards empowering
women. ASA is proud to be one of the very few continually women-led nonprofit
advocacy organizations supporting safe access to medical cannabis. We are so thankful
to Gritty in Pink for holding this 4/20 event to help raise awareness of the needs of
medical cannabis patients all across the country. ASA is ready to rock with you!”
Shira Yevin, singer of Shiragirl and founder of Gritty In Pink, says “We are overjoyed to
advocate for the therapeutic use of marijuana and partner with women in the cannabis
space, which like the music industry, is another male-dominated business. As an artist
who has used cannabis both for medication and creative inspiration, I am pleased to be
living through a historic time where the stigma and criminalization are being eradicated.”
