The non-partisan, non-profit Hip-Hop Summit Action Network, working in coordination with the African American Voter Rep Project, registered over 60,000 young voters in preparation for the Los Angeles Hip-Hop Summit which convened on February 14th, during the recent NBA All Star Weekend. Roc-A-Fella Enterprises CEO and HSAN co-chair Damon Dash emphasized, “The hip-hop community is so powerful and, while some of us have been very successful entrepreneurs, it’s just as important to acknowledge that we are a part of a larger community. We can make a difference by doing our part to empower kids to change the world. Voting is an important step toward that.” HSAN Chairman Russell Simmons stated, “Damon’s chairing the LA Hip-Hop Summit is an example of how this movement has many leaders and can’t be stopped.”
