what we do
Lyrical Opposition operates as both an artist collective and nonprofit organization that discovers and develops lyrical artists who spread messages of hope that inspire and empower communities towards social change. We serve the lyrical community with three areas of cultivation: artist development, personal development, and professional development. We believe synergy between all three are vital towards social and systemic change. Through artist discovery and development, artists are taken to the next level with the resources needed to thrive as a professional artist and educator.
As a faith movement that is based in San Francisco, Lyrical Assembly acknowledges that we are on the ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush (rah-my-toosh) Ohlone (oh-lo-knee) who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula. We wish to pay our respects to the indigenous stewards of this land, and acknowledge that the Ramaytush Ohlone have never ceded, lost nor forgotten their responsibilities as the caretakers of this place, as well as for all peoples who reside in their traditional territory. As Guests, we recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homeland. We wish to pay our respects by acknowledging the Ancestors, Elders and Relatives of the Ramaytush Community and by affirming their sovereign rights as First Peoples.
