WHO WE ARE

The Entertainment Creative Collaborative Outreach Program (ECCO-USA) is a diverse collective of entertainment professionals from high-level executives to creatives in the areas of film, music, television, sports, social media and digital.

 

Our mission is to help bring needed attention to key issues and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the national, regional and local levels via public policy, civic engagement, and legislation.

Process

After initial policy briefings from political leaders, Consortium members brainstorm and offer direct plans using their expertise to creatively translate political initiatives into practical communications to the public .

WHAT WE DO

Production

ECCO “creative translations” explain systems, policies, and ideas into understandable terms, and how these policies affect issues and the community.

In addition to creation, we also assist in the dissemination/exposure of numerous important and oftentimes difficult/complex federal and state issues and initiatives.
