D.C.-based DJ RBI will be providing the music for the artists. Omar Offendum is a Syrian-American Hip Hop and spoken word artist raised in Washington, D.C. Mana is an Iranian-American Hip Hop artist and founder of Lipstick Revolt, a women’s empowerment organization. Amal Kassir is a Syrian-American spoken word poet and activist.
