How can we use hip-hop to awaken our communities and transform oppressive structures? The Raiz Up collective will share their use of graffiti and rap to speak truth to power, support indigenous resistance, and edu-tain their community. We will facilitate smaller group strategy conversations among attendees to bring out the knowledge of participants and share best practices. Attendees will leave with strategies they can take back to their own communities.
