Hip Hop For Change Inc. is a BIPOC-led nonprofit organization based in Oakland, California. As an organization, we address the injustices of Hip Hop culture's misrepresentation through education and community building. Hip Hop For Change uses its platform to empower people who identify with Hip Hop culture and give them a safe space to express their most authentic voices, selves, and culture. Our core values stand with diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our goal is to advocate for all marginalized communities, including POC, LGBTQAI, Indigenous/Tribes, Immigrants, differently-abled bodies, poverty-stricken, systems impacted, and others affected by colonialism in all its forms. We have provided 25,000+ students worldwide with Hip Hop and social justice education, thrown 100+ free all-age social justice events, and hired 1000+ members from the community. Join the fight for our culture!
