Hip Hop For Change is a grassroots organization building relationships with the Bay Area community to support its local artists and challenge the co-opted, mainstream narrative of hip hop. The program seeks to engage people with the broader national context of socio-economic injustices and to raise funding for local solutions. Learn more about HH4C here.
