For people concerned with the lack of positive art in our communities, Hip Hop For Change Inc. is the nonprofit that educates all people about the power of Hip Hop Culture and empowers them with a platform to express themselves through the arts.
Corporate media presents Hip Hop music and culture as a grotesque array of negative stereotypes embracing criminality, sexism, homophobia, gross materialism, and domination culture. These corporate representations of Black and brown people are rooted in white supremacy and serve to legitimize the oppresion of POC communities. We are here to teach the world about true Hip Hop Culture, and how Hip Hop can be used as a tool for social justice. Join our Hip Hop Revolution!
THE THREE PILLARS OF OUR WORK:
Help Us Build Hip Hop For Change Youth Studios!
A new community resource and safe space for the youth to pursue their creative passions.
We are very excited to announce that our long-time dream of owning our own professional recording studio is now a reality! We have been in the design stages for the last couple of months and will begin construction on August 1st.
We hope to have it completed by the end of the year to provide a free community resource for youth under 24 and create sound engineering jobs for local artists. The studio will also serves as an additional space for our Education Department to program our Hip Hop classes. From tracking and mixing, beat-making and rapping, to podcasting and video editing, we want this space to be a welcoming environment for all things Hip Hop.
We are calling on our supporters to help us build a state of the art digital equipment needed for this studio. Please consider donating and being a part of this very special journey as we move our dream forward. We could not do what we do without the generous support of our community. Thank you!
