ABOUT ALL HANDS ON THE DECKS“All Hands on the Decks” is a Give a Beat fundraising and advocacy campaign to raise funds for our pilot “On a New Track” post-incarceration reentry mentoring program and to encourage critical voting in the upcoming election.We are also raising awareness about the plethora of unjust barriers people face upon reentry and mobilize communities to transform the criminal justice system.Funds raised will allow Give a Beat to expand our reentry mentoring program to reach more people and ensure that participants have the resources and support they need to pursue their creative career dreams.The campaign runs through October 10.Donate and learn more: allhandsonthedecks.comABOUT THE REENTRY PROGRAMGive a Beat was awarded a Reentry Through The Arts grant from the California Arts Council to pilot its unique “On a New Track” reentry mentoring program in collaboration with Defy Ventures and the California Mentoring Partnership. GAB will train formerly incarcerated participants from the Defy Ventures community in the art of DJing, music production, and related business and entrepreneurial skills.By connecting previously incarcerated individuals with music business professionals, Give a Beat aims to develop a cycle of change that encourages people to harness their creative talents while engaging members of the electronic music community to educate themselves about bills and legislation.
