"Working for HipHopForChange created a positive space in my daily life. This organization is attempting to change the voice of hip hop while demonstrating unity within the bay area community. The members of this organization are viewed by the public as the "common people" or "working class," but what others do not realize is that these individuals have a passion for changing contemporary society through the original values of hip hop culture: empowerment, self-expression, and diversity.


The individuals that are a part of this organization can be defined as activists, but that doesn't begin to sum up their goals and aspirations. Working for HipHopForChange, you are able to learn and speak about social issues that are happening around the world. Unlike a corporate setting, you are able to speak freely about new age ideas, and not shunned for not fitting into a mold.  My experience with HipHopForChange allowed me to believe in imagination and hope for our youth. This is a movement that will prosper due to their voluntary outreach in the community and the voice that carries along with their values."
