On Saturday, March 19, 2016, 42 cities around the world will participate in a global fundraising initiative bringing together the Hip-Hop community in solidarity and support for the people of Flint, Michigan and in partnership with the non-profit Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church 1417 Stevenson St. Flint, MI. 48504.

Hip Hop 4 Flint will gather local, national, and international hip-hop artists, journalists, activists, educators and supporters to raise funds to purchase water filtration systems for the homes of the residents of Flint, MI.

This event is being led by YoNasDa Lonewolf, emcee, published writer, an activist who focuses her work on human rights, indigenous rights, and social justice and was the creator of Hip-Hop 4 Haiti and an executive committee member of the Justice or  Else! 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March.

The Hip Hop 4 Flint coalition with host a global fundraising event on March 19, 2016, to raise funds to purchase home water filtration systems for residents that will filter both lead and bacteria throughout the entire home, making the water safe for both consumption and washing. Each city will gather their leaders and youth in the hip hop community to host an event to collect monetary donations to purchase water filters. All donations will go towards the purchase of filters which will be delivered personally, home by home, to the residents of Flint by the Hip Hop 4 Flint delegation.

The coalition hosted a similar and successful outreach event entitled Hip Hop 4 Haiti on January 30, 2010 where over 32 major cities joined in and hosted events on the same day. The youth and Hip Hop community hosted events to raise money, relief and awareness for the loss and suffering for the survivors of the devastating hurricane that hit Haiti in 2010.

Hip Hop 4 Flint will bring together notable hip-hop artists such as Du “Doitall” Kelly of the Legendary Lords of the Underground, Hakim Green from Channel Live, Jon Connor of Aftermath and local artists from each city to join hearts and hands in support of the people of Flint. Events will take place simultaneously in
Flint and Detroit, MI, New York City and Long Island, NY, Chicago, Philadelphia, Newark and New Brunswick, NJ, Baltimore, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach, Florida, Dakar, Senegal, Toronto and Montreal, Canada, Boston and New Bedford, Massachusetts, Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Durham,
