Clean Slate Living
Clean Slate Living is a New York-based nonprofit whose mission is to reach the unreached through its “Rewrite Tomorrow” message. Every child and young adult deserve the opportunity to wipe their slate clean from addiction, toxic relationships, and bullying – they can be inspired to rewrite their tomorrow and find a new sense of purpose. Through live performances in schools, youth centers and youth correctional facilities around the nation, the organization seeks to empower audience members to walk away knowing that they have a purpose in life to fulfill and that they are worthy of love.
Matt Pisani is the Founder and Executive Director of Clean Slate Living. As a young aspiring hip hop artist, Matt fell into a lifestyle of addiction to cocaine and alcohol abuse but was able to clean his slate and adopt a healthy lifestyle in 2010. He started Clean Slate Living to share his own life story and encourage youth to make positive changes in their own lives. His live performances share hip hop music with positive messages and clean song lyrics. Clean Slate Living is an embodiment of the belief that all youth can have a new start despite the challenges they face and change the direction of their lives.
