Caitlyn Jenner, Madeleine Albright, James Comey — three individuals whose words have had an indelible impact on contemporary culture. It’s fitting that they’re among the 20 leaders who are featured in Speech Moves, a non-partisan, nonpolitical digital campaign centered around the message that what you say matters — regardless of where you say it.

Launched at SXSW on March 11, Speech Moves was conceived and produced by Washington Speakers Bureau (WSB), internationally-renowned photographer and director Platon, as well as global production company Great Bowery Film.

As our society continues to be heavily influenced by social media, it’s imperative to remember that while it serves as a platform to share our opinions with the world, the perceived veil of anonymity can be detrimental.

With a compelling PSA, social media takeover, and guerrilla marketing techniques, Speech Moves features the aforementioned individuals, alongside other thought leaders including Sugar Ray Leonard, Tony Blair, Ali Wentworth, Abby Wambach, Stephanie McMahon, and others. The choice to include leaders from varying political beliefs, occupations, industries and backgrounds shines light on how truly universal this movement is. Their monologues enhance the message that words are potent—they move, empower, free, drive, inspire, validate, provoke, reveal, and will continue to influence every moment in history, particularly in our social media-saturated culture.
