Save Magnolia Wellness

Call to action to support a locally owned small business bounce back!

Magnolia Wellness, Oakland, California's preeminent holistic health provider has been repeatedly and brutally robbed amidst the current state of unrest in our city. Magnolia is an equal opportunity, non-discriminatory haven for all walks of life in our city. It’s an ally of the highest degree to the protestors that are demanding an end to the murder of black people by the police, and have long been active participants in the efforts to end systematic racism, not just in Oakland, but nationally.

The work force of Magnolia is owned and operated primarily by women, people of color, and LGBTQIA+ folk. Team members have been attending the protests, and are, and have long been, peacefully engaging in non-violent direct actions themselves.

At the same time, Magnolia’s facility has been robbed and vandalized repeatedly by armed robbers, who are taking advantage of the civic unrest to commit crimes indiscriminately. Magnolia’s is not the only company that’s been looted to the ground in Oakland; it’s just one of the best. And, that’s why we started this fund, so it can be rebuild and reopened again, as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Magnolia stands in solidarity with Oakland and with all effected by this horrible reality we live in together, and fully empathizes with the plight and emotions of rage brought about by the systematic and institutionalized racism perpetrated by our nation's violent and deadly police forces. And to help, it strives to persevere by providing education, wellness, and compassion to our community. Twice now, the police have allowed armed robbers to maraud Magnolia’s building, without pause. It’s only the community that can help us now.

The team at Magnolia, and members of the community that care about it, humbly ask any and all to donate towards rebuilding and reopening the facility. And, not only have we have been robbed of all resources to serve the people, but the two neighbors who share our space have as well. Both are small businesses, one is an equity owned small manufacturer and the other is a chiropractor’s office who has long served our clients jointly; we all feel horrible that they were targeted, too. The funds will be used to fix adjoining doors, walls that were cut through, and to help in other ways possible to return the facility to form.

ANYTHING that you can donate to aid Magnolia in rebuilding this essential business in the wake of this pandemic would be such a blessing.

We will donate 10% of this fund to Supernova Women, "an organization formed by and for Women of Color in 2015, with the goal of utilizing our diverse talents to empower our people to become self sufficient shareholders in the evolving cannabis economy. " Magnolia could not agree with this goal more!

With abundant love, infinite appreciation, and every ounce of solidarity,
The Magnolia Wellness Community
