Lisa Brown became acquainted with Hip Hop Caucus through her brother, Young Hustle, when he began working with The Caucus years ago. A Chicago native, Lisa believes that a lack of education and awareness is the biggest hindrance for people in underserved communities. As a business owner and an active member of her community, it’s important to her that the voices of those in urban communities are heard. An organization using Hip Hop as a catalyst for engagement was a refreshing approach to Lisa and she was eager to learn more about the organization.
