Give a Beat
Give a Beat’s mission is to reduce the harmful effects of incarceration through music production, DJing, and other education programs that transform individuals and inspire communities to take action.
We envision a world where those most affected by incarceration are not only shown compassion and dignity, but empowered to forge talents and creative careers. By connecting to music industry professionals, we will widen the pathways for people to thrive, reduce recidivism, promote healing, and at the same time unite to contribute to the larger criminal justice reform movement.

Giving Back Project
In collaboration with CPP, the men at Kern Valley State Prison and Lancaster Prison spearheaded The Giving Back Project — an initiative to find ways to give back to the communities they’ve harmed and engender hope.
“Russell is a force of creation, innovation and love. He gives back to us every day in his words and vision. As he changes, we change. He is a beacon of what’s possible when we stop and see the magnificence behind the walls.”
