Hello friends, neighbors, supporters, and haters.
We’re in the last days of our ‘founding donors’ campaign to help us level up our efforts to preserve, protect, and promote the ability of hip-hop music and culture to improve humanity.
If this is a mission you support, please visit our campaign page.
So far, we’ve had several meetings with our nonprofit team, set up a new hip-hop x tech x youth workshop, sent out a couple of newsletters like this one, and have started working on several promising grant proposals.
Now, on to recent stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration, and insight.
💚 - Manny Faces, Founder/Exec. Director, The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy
P.S. I’ll be proudly sitting on a panel at the Hip-Hop Youth Research & Activism conference at Rutgers - New Brunswick, this Thursday, June 6.
If you’d like a speaker/panelist/consultant to help you or your organization examine ways that hip-hop can improve many areas of society (education, business, social justice, health & wellness, STEM fields, etc.), reach out and let’s talk about talking!
