Our "Mighty" Collaboration with Hip Hop for Change

Our Mighty Collaboration with Hip Hop for Change

Our Partnership with Hip Hop for Change and RyanNicole

This year we launched an exciting collaboration with Hip Hop for Change and GRAMMY-nominated artist RyanNicole Austin to connect local frontline communities with Baykeeper’s special brand of legal and scientific activism.

Hip Hop for Change logoInspired by a recent Baykeeper boat patrol, RyanNicole's new musical creation Small but Mighty, encourages local youth, community activists, and hip hop audiences to take action for communities of color living and playing around the Bay.

RyanNicole debuted the song at the 6th Annual Environmental Justice Summit in San Francisco on August 20, 2022, and the music video premiered on August 18, 2023.  

This project was made possible in part by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund that also is supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

There are lots of ways you can help protect San Francisco Bay and the communities that rely on a healthy environment.
