According to All Hip-Hop.com,

Chance the Rapper is set to be a part of a new initiative called #StayWokeAndFight. The rapper will speak to youth activists next month at Howard University to discuss how to plan and respond to new civil rights violations which are expected under Donald Trump’s new administration. The leaders of the Youth & College Division of the NAACP has partnered with Justice League New York and the Empowerment Movement to launch the new initiative. Organizers say it will involve protests and other activism to call for criminal justice reform, and education investment. The three organizations worked together to register thousands of new young voters during the 2016 election and they have a goal of ushering in a new era of activism, in response to the election of Donald Trump.

According to Allhiphop, Stephen Green, Director of the NAACP Youth & College Division said in a statement, “We are faced with a moral and ethical crisis during this critical time in our nation’s history after the election of Donald J. Trump. This moment calls for young leaders to gather together and develop a strategy to protect the human and civil rights of all Americans through nonviolent resistance.”
