How we are different

Movement Media is a different kind of public relations firm. We are for clients who aren’t served by conventional public relations. We exist for companies and organizations with stories and narratives that challenge the way things are and the way we are told things must be done. We work in social change communications.

Since we began, firms like us have become more common. What’s especially unique about us is that we are rooted in and are shaped by the progressive subcultures and grassroots movements that popular movements and true social transformation emerges from, both historically and today. This is why we say ‘we are activists at heart, and publicists by trade’.

This means we know how to talk about change efforts authentically and with integrity—in the activist sphere and the business sphere—and in the places where the two interconnect. We have seen a shift from the work we do being uncommon to the framing of “change making” and “mission driven” being among the leading ways brands and corporations’ market themselves and how run-of-the-mill mainstream organizations promote their work. Greenwashing, cause- washing, and now woke-washing is seemingly everywhere. What’s real news? What’s fake news? What’s mere virtue signaling and what’s an authentic expression of a commitment to do the real work necessary to make a more just world?

We have been working in the realm of “business for good” before it was popular and before the people and companies who made it necessary through unethical deeds became interested in its value proposition. Why does this matter? Because good social change communications work must be anchored not by trends or profit motive but by authentic work that reflects ones professed values and intentions, and a deep understanding of the core audiences who influence and shape discourse and how to communicate to them—from the grassroots to the mainstream, from micro-influencers to mass media and main stage thought leaders, from those creating sub-cultures to those shifting culture.
