Speakers Include:

Rev. Lennox Yearwood: President of the Hip Hop Caucus, a national coalition of pop-culture social/political groups and youth leadership organizations who believe in the collective power of persons aged 14-39.

Mimi Kennedy: Progressive Democrats of America, Advisory Board Chair, is an actor and activist. She was a charter member of Artists United to Win Without War, and a leading supporter of Dennis Kucinich’s antiwar presidential campaign in 2004. She has worked on human rights, environmental and labor issues, and studied nonviolent social action with Rev. James Lawson.

Dr. Bill Honigman: Progressive Democrats of America California organizer.

Ahjamu Makalani: Vice Chair for the California Democratic Progressive Caucus, Vice Chair for the San Bernardino Central Committee, member of Progressive Democrats of Los Angeles, Black Radical Congress.

Steve Cobble: Progressive Democrats of America Board Member and Associate Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, who focuses on antiwar work and voting rights issues. He served as an adviser to Dennis Kucinich in 2003-04, and was heavily involved in the post-election battle over the suppression of African-American votes in Ohio in 2004.

Make Hip Hop Not War will provide the anti-war movement with a "surge" that could transform current public opinion which opposes the war into powerful mobilization against the war. A stronger and more diverse mobilization is critical to force our policymakers to take concrete steps to withdraw our troops from Iraq and to prevent an attack on Iran.
