In 2019, Harry was elected to the Board of Directors of MRCC where he was involved with supporting the initial cohort for the C.C.C. ‘s Social Equity Program. Over the last few years, Harry has been dedicated to organizing, testifying, and lobbying for policies related to cannabis equity and criminal justice reform.
