CNN political contributor Van Jones and strategist Molly Haigh team up to launch Megaphone Strategies, which bills itself as a “social justice media strategy firm run for purpose, not profit.”
Jones will serve as chairman of the board while Haigh will lead an initial staff of five as president.
“Everywhere we look, we discover courageous people finding ways to break down barriers and solve tough problems. We need to hear their voices, and we need to elevate their work,” said Van Jones of the reason behind the firm’s creation, which will offer strategy, publicity, media training and event/social justice campaign planning services.
The firm’s current roster of progressive clients includes Vote.org, the Working Families Party and Demand Progress.
