This is a FREE space with RSVP.

The A3C Action Pitch Competition is a national competition looking to find, support, and invest in new, innovative ideas that use art, music and hip-hop culture as a vehicle to advance social justice and civic engagement. The A3C Action Pitch Competition invites organizations from around the country to submit their ideas.

The final pitch is on Friday, Oct 6th at the Action Summit
