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.
