For people concerned with the lack of positive art in our communities, Hip Hop For Change Inc. is the nonprofit that educates and empowers all people with a platform to express themselves through the arts while teaching society about the power of Hip Hop Culture.

the three pillars of our work

The Foundation

The mainstream music industry sells sexism, drug abuse, homophobia, materialism, and gang violence as if these problems represent the cornerstones of hip hop culture.


The corporate media presents Hip Hop music and culture as a grotesque array of negative stereotypes, embracing criminality, sexism, homophobia, materialism, and domination culture. These corporate representations are part of a historical legacy of oppression of black and brown people; propaganda that demonizes and objectifies people of color is the ideological basis for the legitimization of oppression and prejudice.
