“Hope will never be silent.”
– Harvey Milk

Our Social Justice Research Department puts data and insights into the hands of organizations, businesses, community organizers, and any group whose purpose is to tackle the root of systemic inequalities.  We strive to elevate the voices of the underserved and overlooked.

The Social Justice Research Department discovers solutions to hopefully leave the world better off than how we found it.

I often wonder what more I can do to give back. When I started my own company, this thought didn’t leave me.

I wanted to weave that sentiment into the DNA
of Echo.

Over the past several years, this desire to give back began to manifest into concrete ideas. A huge piece meant to examine what we as a company- and as an industry- have to offer in the way of helping people, empowering people to do good and ultimately find ways to provide support and opportunities to communities that may need it in a way that reflects the values we have as individuals.

We plan to build the structure around this department to help move the needle in a progressive way – including work with NGOs, political candidates, policy creation, and direct intervention.

If you’d like to join us – through partnerships, brainstorming or some other way, please reach out. We see this as a starting point – a movement – and we’re stronger together.
