Be a Masshole, Not an Asshole

Male Massachusetts residents are 38% less likely than female residents to agree with the LGBTQ movement. So how do you get them to advocate for and vote to uphold transgender rights? You just tell them to be themselves.  Redefining the term “Masshole” as the champion of civil liberties, our social film reminded Massachusetts citizens, especially men, that only a real asshole would deny rights to their neighbors. “Be a Masshole, Not an Asshole” increased conversation and advocacy among an unlikely audience, helping uphold transgender rights during the 2018 midterm elections.

Point of View

Gun violence in schools is a national tragedy, but for years, we've been trapped in a polarized stalemate on this issue. Sandy Hook Promise has an effective and unifying solution: empowering individuals to prevent violence by educating them on the signs. To spotlight this solution, we had to show audiences a school shooting from a never-before-seen perspective: the shooter's. With just $171K in total media budget, our PSA garnered 439MM impressions, earned media worth 26x our paid investment, and increased the likelihood of key prevention behaviors by 30-66%.

Stop Traffick

Atlanta is the worst place in the US for child sex trafficking, an issue set to worsen in the run up to hosting the Super Bowl. However, child sex trafficking had fallen off people's radars and had lost its stopping power.  Through the symbolism of 72 buses, representing the number of children trafficked in Georgia each year, we reframed a space associated with safety, into a symbol no one could ignore. Stop Traffick galvanized Atlantans and policy makers around this horrific issue, leading to 169 arrests before Super Bowl LIII.
