The JVN Project is a collective centered on using the genre and culture of Hip-Hop as a tool of empowerment. It is an organization instituted by students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison inspired by the life of 19-year- old Chicagoan artist and UW-Madison student John Vietnam Nguyễn - emcee, poet, dancer, music engineer, and activist.
