We are committed to these calls to action:

FEEL - We empower people to create and consume meaningful media that promotes universal human values such as compassion, empathy and respect.

INSPIRE - We celebrate success stories of how to unleash the power of media to accelerate social change.

CONNECT - We encourage collaboration between cause-driven creatives, media professionals, educators, and government and nonprofit leaders to amplify their collective impact.
