Sabrina Fendrick came to Berkeley Patients Group (BPG) as Director of Government Affairs in January 2015, after spending nearly seven years at the Washington DC-based National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). In her current role at BPG, Sabrina works to educate lawmakers and government officials to help them understand the implications of various commercial cannabis regulations, as well as the importance of how these laws will impact the industry, and local communities. She also takes part in many aspects of community organizing – working to engage stakeholders and educate local leaders on the structure and fundamentals of this emerging industry.
In 2010, while at NORML, Sabrina founded the NORML Women’s Alliance, and served as the Director of Women’s Outreach for the next 4 years. In 2014, as the Director of Strategic Partnerships, she opened NORML’s first satellite office in Denver, CO, and launched the NORML Business Network. Sabrina is a member of the Students for Sensible Drug Policy Advisory Council and the Marijuana Majority Advisory Board.
How do you incorporate gender parity, social justice and environmental sustainability into your work and the growth of your business/organization?
I incorporate gender parity into my work and the growth of my organization by serving as an active member of Women Grow, and by championing a diverse workforce within BPG. From giving back to the community to operating at the highest professional standards, Berkeley Patients Group has embedded corporate social responsibility into the very fabric of their DNA – and that philosophy is reflected in everything I do.
