League Of Young Voters Hit BET Awards For “Ignite LA” Event; Nipsey Hussle and Dee-1 To Speak

(AllHipHop News) With the 2012 Presidential Election on the horizon, the League of Young Voters have teamed up with AllHipHop.com for a one-of-a-kind event to take place in Los Angeles during the BET Awards this weekend.

Following January’s successful “Barack Talk”, organizers say that this weekend’s “Ignite LA: Uprising Remixed” event will be a “live streaming civic engagement event, spotlighting the work of youth organizers, cultural workers and unsung civic heroes in the Los Angeles area. The event will feature musical performances and uncensored panel discussions about the 2012 election and the role Los Angeles plays in influencing national trends.”

The event, which takes place tomorrow (June 30) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. PST at the Mercado La Paloma in Los Angeles, will be live streamed on YoungVoterLive.com and AllHipHop.com. Event partners, including the League of Young Voters, S.C.O.P.E., and Cashmere Agency will utilize the livestream to engage with the music and political communities before the 2012 Election in November.

RSVP to watch tomorrow’s event, which will feature Nipsey Hussle, Dee-1, AllHipHop.com CEO Chuck Creekmur, Jasiri X, and more, on the event Facebook page.
