Hip Hop Congress works everyday to bring positive change to our lives.
From its inception in 1993, Hip Hop Congress (HHC) set out to change the world by recognizing Hip Hop as a global culture. By using the unique experience and knowledge of Hip Hop Artists, HHC conquers a specific need by alleviating barriers to social equity, inclusion, and youth engagement through art, music, dance and social justice. Creative ambassadors of change use their talents to connect, teach, organize and inspire across cultures, genders and ethnicities. Every Change Maker that sits on our Board of Directors shares a few critical yet core attributes. Some of those key values are:
- Dedication to helping youth succeed
