Share a story of how music impacted your life  

At Give a Beat, we know that music and the arts are essential forms of self-expression.  Music and the arts can also heal trauma, bring people together and educate through storytelling.  We would love to hear from you on how music has played a role in your life!


Be a regular blog contributor 

Give a Beat’s blog explores the issues and personal stories relating to the mass incarceration epidemic, how the arts play a vital role in education and self-expression, how the dance music community is getting involved with the mass incarceration issue, and much more.  We are always looking for blog post ideas and entries.  Please get in touch with us!


Be our social media advocate

Help spread our message of compassion, unity, love, empathy and respect for people and communities grappling with the injustices of the mass incarceration crisis by following us on social media, commenting on our posts, and sharing our content.

Our DJ Workshops are in full swing and we are actively looking for experienced DJ’s and educators to lead the workshops.  From the feedback we have received, it is clear that DJ workshop volunteers get as much out of volunteering as the participants do.  Fill out our form and we’ll get you started!
