Join us March 19, 2016 for #HipHop4Flint Day – A national day of unity for the city of Flint, Michigan! In April 2014, while the city was under the control of a state appointed emergency manager, their water became contaminated. The toxic water in Flint has made the water undrinkable and put the entire city in a state of emergency. The contaminated water hit the children of Flint the hardest. Some have experienced permanent and devastating health defects from lead poisoning. Cities around the world are gathering leaders, youth, and supporters in the hiphop community to host an event to collect monetary donations to purchase water filters and receive donated filters to be delivered to Flint. The strength that hiphop encompasses will bring together the community like no other, because hiphop is UNIVERSAL!
Multiple levels of sponsorships are available, and each opportunity includes customization to meet diverse marketing needs both locally and nationally. For more information please contact your local HipHop 4 Flint organizers. HipHop 4 Flint is a partner organization with Prince of Peace Church, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
