The Formation Tour with Beyonce’ may have ended in Detroit, but it’s not the end for ladies to unite and stand up for a cause this week!

Piper Carter, the founder of the Foundation of Women in Hip Hop, will be  making history by launching the first Women in Hip Hop Conference , June 16-19.

The organization’s mission is “…to educate and empower the community through sharing love of the arts, inspiring growth, building leadership, and influencing the perceptions and roles of women in hip hop for current and future generations.”

Although media likes to have people think that women aren’t working together to empower one another and  to fight for a greater cause, the Foundation of Women in Hip Hop  knocks that negative talk down by  giving artists, activists and academics the opportunity to have an intimate and interactive experience with technology, art, music, social justice and community.

The conference will  empower  all women with the elements of hip hop by including a cypher, b-girl dance battle, film screening, workshops, panel discussions and  will also feature a concert hosted by Jessica Care Moore, showcasing the next generation of women in hip hop.
