Hip Hop is Green
Future Healthy Students and Earth Act formal Bill
Hip Hop is Green NYC worked on a bill to help get plant based foods in NYC schools.
Keith Tucker, Hip Hop is Green’s Founder, and our New York City Chapter leader and Executive Director of Chilis on Wheels, Eloisa Trinidad, worked with a coalition of several organizations to help craft this bill. Hip Hop is Green played a critical role representing and working on behalf of our BIPOC youth. A big thank you to Eloisa for spearheading this initiative and to Reps. Velázquez and Bowman for introducing this Bill for consideration.
Partnership with City of Baltimore and Sugar Hill Gang
Hip Hop is Green partnered with the Housing Authority of Baltimore “Everybody is at Risk” COVID-19 prevention and awareness campaign by negotiating participation from the legendary hip hop group the Sugarhill Gang to help spread the word about wearing facial coverings to stop the spread of the virus.
The Sugarhill Gang, the trailblazing artists with the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Rapper’s Delight”, learned of HABC’s comprehensive efforts to inform and advise residents on best practices to stop the spread of COVID-19 and offered to support the “Everybody is at Risk” campaign. The group combined another one of their legendary hits, “Apache – Jump On it” to create a video and inform residents about the importance of wearing facial coverings.
