Action Accelerator Pitch Night

The Action Accelerator aims to find, develop, and invest in new, innovative ideas that use art, music and hip-hop culture to advance social justice in underserved communities.
The creative community has been the heart and soul of social justice movements throughout history. Creatives have brought the struggle for justice and change to life through the arts, and we are proud to honor and carry on their legacy.
Through our partnership with the Center for Civic Innovation more than 500 applications have been submitted, 17 non-profits have gone through the Action Accelerator and over $30,000 has been allocated since 2015.
Finalists will receive more than $10,000 in cash and in-kind contributions.
