Impact Summary from the Nonprofit - Co-sponsored the 2006 National Hip Hop Political Convention in Chicago, IL. to strengthen the hip hop generation's civic and political participation. The event attracted 3,500 youth from 53 cities across 22 states. - Spearheaded a campaign to restore funds to 37 community based agencies from across the Illinois that lost their Teen REACH programs.
