Moogfest, Give A Beat & DanceGruv Radio presents Music & Tech

Music & Tech: Tools to Fight Mass Incarceration – Panel at Moogfest 2017

Join Give a Beat and DanceGruv Radio in a discussion around the variety of ways music and technology are being utilized to address, avoid, fight, and recover from the devastating impact of mass incarceration. The U.S. is the world leader in locking up people for minor offenses, with excessive sentences, in inhumane conditions, without proper legal representation. These practices have had serious repercussions, including the disenfranchisement of people of color, and a stunning price-tag of $1 trillion a year for the US economy. This problem is so massive, that it requires a call to action in every industry and every community. Give a Beat aims to represent the dance music community’s response to mass incarceration through innovative grass-roots driven music programs.
