WHO WE ARE

The Hip Hop Union

On September 19, 2009 a group of 22 individuals from various Hip Hop Organizations across the country assembled to discuss what they could do collectively to make Hip Hop stronger, more respected and worthwhile they named themselves the Collective.

The group concluded that The Hip Hop Union will act together to secure specific benefits, rights and respect for the Hip Hop Community. The Hip Hop Union will act on behalf of individuals and business who declare themselves Hip Hop Citizens and mirror the powerful Union’s that exist in today’s world.

Since its inception, the Collective set out to build the Hip Hop Union from the ground up based on the results of the first board meeting. The group hosted the Hip Hop Union Inaugural Celebration at Jesse Jackson’s 13th Annual Wall Street Economic Summit at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers, January 13, 2010 in NYC where they resurrected the I AM A MAN campaign three days before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday with the I AM A CITIZEN campaign. From March through October, Hip Hop Union Founder Jineea Butler took the campaign on the road to 10 cities in six months enrolling citizens and researching what to do what with the excessive number of individuals trying to make a career out of making music. Sebastion Elkoubly of Global Awareness through Hip Hop Culture led the preparation of the Hip Hop Union Education Curriculum which has been presented to Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus. Curtis Chambers began the Hip Hop Union Constitution, which will be further expanded by Hip Hop Union Chair Andrew Carr.

Global Brand Manager, Manny Ayala of the Collective ignited a fire behind the I AM A CITIZEN campaign for the 2nd Annual Hip Hop Union Celebration which included a Power Conference (January 10 – 14th, 2011) at the 14th Annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit called “A More Perfect Union – Time to Rebuild America.” Mr. Ayala was able to introduce the Brand and get buy in from music industry insiders. The success sparked a year long campaign to get 10 million people to declare I AM A CITIZEN and sign the Hip Hop Union National Flag.
