This month, Hip Hop Caucus will be touring six HBCU campuses in six cities in six states, making their message known that our political leaders must create realistic solutions on the issue of climate change. Famous recording artists, cultural leaders, academics and political influencers will be joining the tour to reach out to thousands of young people and campaign for clear and effective solutions to climate change.
Hip Hop Caucus’ main concern is that many of today’s underserved communities are riddling with pollution, which, as proven many times is one of the causes of climate change. The Act On Climate Campus Spring Tour is a voice out for sustainable solutions that can clean the planet and make it a better place to live for future generations.
