There is a completely new industry being built. It is being defined by massive shifts by powerful Hollywood talent agencies such as WME-Endeavor creating PACs(Political Action Committees) to United Talent Agency foregoing its annual Oscar party for a Refugee Rally. Converging with this trend surge is a disruptive surge in influential recording artist voice and action from Snoop Dogg to A Tribe Called Quest to T.I. and many more who are creating everything from politically-related posts and videos on Instagram, to delivering provocative music videos, to releasing bold lyrics, to vocalizing strong award show commentary and more. Major corporations from Amazon to Dreamworks are now doubling down on positioning and stance regarding new shifts in national politics.

The concerns over economic rights, balance, inclusion - no matter what one's background - in America are top of mind for everyone in today's era. Fans are deeply interested in seeing their views and voice reflected through those who represent them such as celebrated figures. Yet the actions by such figures has no master strategy behind it, extremely limited knowledge of political inner-workings, and essentially no formalized usage of insiders to help develop protective barriers while leveraging such a massive trend.

Similarly, poltical/activist operatives often seek the leverage that notables can offer, particulary for the vocal, Millennial audience, but have little or no access to the entertainment world and/or the strategies, once applied, often lack innovation.

Thus, there are major missed opportunities on all sides, and costly mis-steps. Real access, plan, and collaboration is needed now more than ever because we are witnessing the rise of a new currency – socio-political currency.

There has been no bridge between these worlds… until now.
