PDX Hip-hop 4 Standing Rock CD Release Benefit Concert

  • DISJECTA 8371 North Interstate Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

Join us for a night of music, dance and art at DISJECTA !!
All ages. $10 suggested donation (no one turned away for lack of funds). 

Goal: to raise funds for the water protectors and to spread awareness about the Standing Rock cause. Many arrests have taken place at the main Water Protector camp. But this is not the end, but the beginning. Standing Rock has been the catalyst to raise awareness about the impact of oil-dependency and the current thinking / way of life on future generations. There are ongoing resistance to oil-pipelines all over North America and it's time to think about alternatives to fossil fuel dependncy. We intend to spread love and consciousness with dope emcees, guest elder speakers, amazing dance and art!!

We will celebrate the release of the PDX Hip-hop 4 Standing Rock Compilation featuring Mic CrenshawSerge SevereBlacque ButterflyKunu Dittmer and many more!

Throughout the event, we will be hosting a silent art auction featuring amazing works by local artists. 100% of the proceeds from the art auction go to the Water Protector cause. 

Half of all other of the even't proceeds will go to our youth-based non-profit, Cypher CURE, to be sustainable and continue to do work with youth and host community events. The other half will also go to the Water Protector cause.
