Hip Hop For Social Justice

Hey kids: Hip Hop benefit show for United States Social Forum at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Chicago tomorrow night. Your entry fee will help send peeps from the Windy City to join the fun in Atlanta from June 27 - July 1 for "more than a conference, more than a networking bonanza, more than a reaction to war and repression. The USSF will provide space to build relationships, learn from each other's experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring renewed insight and inspiration. It will help develop leadership and develop consciousness, vision, and strategy needed to realize another world."

Chicago groups participating in the USSF process include: Southside Together Organizing for Power, Hip Hop Congress, Coalition to Protect Public Housing, Kenwood Oakland Community Organization, Southwest Youth Collaborative, Access Living, Blocks Together, Jobs With Justice, Insight Arts, and a growing list of others.

And if that's not enough to grab the interest of you more visually-oriented folks, here's a YouTube clip:
