Cyphers for Justice

Cyphers for Justice (CFJ) apprentices inner-city youth as critical researchers through the use of hip-hop, spoken word, and digital literacy. Founded within the traditions of Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) and Hip-Hop culture, CFJ youth work alongside Columbia University graduate students, professors, and community-based teaching artists, to conduct research and present their findings on relevant social issues. CFJ is an afterschool program within Columbia University's Institute for Urban and Minority Education (IUME).
