There is no First World, no Third World. There is only "the world."
Milennials in Kenyan refugee camps surf the internet. Coffee farmers in Guatemala are on Instagram. Women in Afghanistan write social dissent poetry on their smartphones, sharing it on Facebook. People who have traditionally been marginalized are now part of the global mainstream, without waiting for the rest of the world to grant permission or provide the tools. Social movements are arising, powered by conversations.
Our mission is to accelerate that process by amplifying these voices.
We believe that agendas for true social change must be driven by social movements originating locally and supported globally, rather than by campaigns originating globally and (occasionally) endorsed locally. We partner with exceptional individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments across the globe, to support their crucial missions with our knowledge of story strategy, packaging, and outreach. We assist as they tell their own stories of change and represent their own agendas to the right audiences.
Further, we work with remarkable people who have been directly affected by social issues to help them develop into influential and effective thought-leader/advocates for issues they've personally survived. Martin Luther King, Jr said, "The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice." Our job is to help it bend faster.
