Join Our Cipher

The Cipher builds the capacity and impact of organizations, emerging community institutions and individuals who work through Hip-Hop to advance social change. The Cipher is a unique resource for Hip-Hop non-profit organizations, artists, activists, educators, practitioners and scholars. We provide research, convene members of our field, publish promising practices, and advocate for investment in the work of our field to members of the government, as well as foundations, individuals and corporate communities.

After years of doing capacity building it has become clearer that we need to advance the idea of “Expanding the Cipher.”  By cultivating new advocates, we become a primary resource for people outside of Hip-Hop, and build the capacity of members of the field.  We are advancing a three-track strategy that focuses around Hip-Hop community capacity, agency and organization-based collaboration and advocate cultivation.
