American society embraces hip-hop as a mainstream cultural and multi-billion dollar economic force, but our political leadership fails to ensure a public policy agenda that recognizes our humanity and full citizenship.
The Hip-Hop Political Education Summit is a catalyst for dialogue and action. We connect Hip-Hop’s leading innovators with experts in their respective fields—gender, technology, health, politics, business, etc.
Founded in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests that reached over 2000 cities, the seeds for the Hip-Hop Political Education Summit were planted by the hip-hop community’s long-standing tradition of fighting back against racial and economic inequality.
The Hip-Hop Political Education Summit seeks to provide life-saving information to the hip-hop community, preparing each citizen for their role in transforming policy and building political power.
We believe that political education is the important first step in reconciling the disparity between Hip-Hop’s enormous influence as a culture and the lack of leadership and policies that meaningfully impact our lives and our communities.
