Jack Jacobson, President
For two decades, Jack has represented corporations, coalitions, nonprofit organizations, and associations before federal, state, and local governments and policymakers. He works with clients on a variety of matters related to the regulation of cannabis, including banking reform. Jack understands his clients' business models and uses their market differentiation to more effectively engage Congress and the administration. At the start of the 116th Congress, Jack and Becky launched SARBA to fill a policy leadership and educational void around cannabis banking reform. SARBA has been a national leader, and is intimately involved in educational and advocacy efforts on the SAFE Banking Act and similar legislative initiatives.
Becky Dansky, Esq., Executive Director
Starting in 1999, Dansky has worked on a broad range of issues in the legislative departments of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, the Leadership Conference on Human and Civil Rights, the Interfaith Alliance Foundation, the National Council of Jewish Women, and served as the Federal Legislative Director at the National LGBTQ Task Force. In June 2015, Becky joined the State Policies Department at the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) as legislative counsel. During her time at MPP, Becky worked closely with advocates and lawmakers in Pennsylvania to assist in the passage of Act 16, which created the state’s first medical marijuana plan. In addition to monitoring the implementation of that program, Becky worked on marijuana-related legislative campaigns in over two dozen other states. In June 2018, Becky left MPP and began work as an independent consultant and marijuana policy expert. She launched SARBA with Jack in January 2019, bringing her deep knowledge and policy experience to bear on federal regulatory and legislative efforts related to cannabis banking reform.
