Cardi’s visit is a part of her partnership tour she is doing with the Queens-based non-profit, Community Capacity Development. The human justice organization is working to wipe out systemic challenges in marginalized communities of color and has reportedly been praised by the Grammy-winning rapper for their work in gun violence prevention, youth mentorship, and education.
