HipHopForChange, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit that uses grassroots activism to educate people about socio-economic injustices and advocate solutions through Hip Hop culture. We are building a base of self-determination, where the community controls the cultural narratives, values, and means of production. And we won’t stop until we take the game back! Join the fight for our culture!
We're going to be honest with you. We have been financially struggling the whole year because of COVID-19. We lost 25% of our donor base and had to let go of our entire grassroots canvassing team, leaving us with just a 6 person leadership team to run the organization. Despite the economic hardship, we have also accomplished so much in 2020:
We are still doing AMAZING work in and for the community! By giving to Hip Hop For Change, you are gifting the community with: Hip Hop education, free all-age social justice events, and grassroots jobs. Please help us get through the year, we really need your help to keep our Hip Hop Revolution alive.
We are building a FREE recording studio for Bay Area youth to creatively express themselves and heal from their collective trauma through Hip Hop Culture. This free community space will provide our youth with opportunities for artist development, positive community role models, and resources to pursue their creative passions.
That is why we will be working closely with Oakland transitional youth from juvenile detention centers and group homes to help them reintegrate back into our community. This will be our "Pipeline To Positivity" Educational Program, which will give ten transitional youth artistic mentorship and professional development from Hip Hop For Change artists.
As leaders of the community, we give the youth a deeper understanding of the critical role of Hip Hop Culture in and for POC communities. We will give them efficacy, mentors, resources, opportunities, and most importantly -- love.
Thank you so much for your support. Happy Hip Hop Holidays to you and your loved ones! Please stay safe and healthy!
Your Hip Hop For Change Family
