Social Media and Activism
Most recently GSWT's work with Rock The Vote and She The People have placed both brands as the leading organizations facilitating a successful election for 2020. She The People recently helped place the first Black and Asian woman to be on the ticket as a VP candidate for the 2020 election. GSWT created all content surrounding that win.
Rock The Vote has continued to lead the voting rights space for over 30 years, in 2018 GSWT came in and helped pivot the brand to focus on the needs on a grass root level and grew their social media page beyond belief. They have registered over one million new voters since increasing their online visibility.
