Aisha Fukushima's unique blend of hip hop and social justice has enthralled audiences around the globe, from the United States to Germany to Kazakhstan.
DJ Jamie Jams (aka Jamie Guzzi) has been a Bay Area activist and club promoter for over 12 years. Recipient of both an SFBG Best of the Bay for his 90's throwback party DEBASER and an SFBG community Activist Award for his work with the Bay Area Fair Trade Coalition, Jamie does his best to prove that fighting corporate globalization isn't an exclusively 90's thing. He's also a Global Exchange alumnus: Global Economy Campaigner, 2001-2006.
We’re happy to share the stage with Aisha and Jamie to raise awareness together about the most pressing human rights issues of our times.
