The Hip Hop Congress will be holding its 6th annual conference in Athens, OH from July 4th to July 8th. Hip Hop Congress is a 501©3 Non-Profit organization and international grassroots network whose mission is to unite, educate, and empower individuals.

The Hip Hop Congress utilizes Hip Hop to inspire civic action and cultural creativity within the community. Hip Hop Congress has over 35 chapters throughout the country and works with artists, organizers, promoters and a host of other institutions and organizations.

This year’s national conference, co sponsored with our partners Unite Here, SPAN, and H2A, will continue to develop a national service infrastructure for HHC with a variety of other national organizations, student groups, artists and partners. This means working with more students, more artists and more communities.
