What we
stand for

Democracy

We believe in equal representation, the open exchange of ideas within free societies, and freedom of the press. We believe that every individual within a democracy is entitled to the right to vote without interference or undue burden.

Democracy

Science

We believe in experimentally-validated scientific facts, including the science of climate change and vaccine science. As a company, we minimize our negative impact on the environment and actively support organizations working to end climate change. We believe in fighting misinformation on the internet in all its forms.

Racial Justice

We acknowledge the systemic racism and bias that permeates policing, the justice system, education, employment, healthcare, housing, and beyond. At Vocal, we are committed to confronting and dismantling the structures of bias and racism in our country and the world. We prioritize working with and supporting creators of color and campaigns that advance racial equity through social, economic, and structural change. As part of our commitment to racial justice, we do not take on law enforcement clients.

Racial Justice

Economic Justice

We believe that all workers have the fundamental right to unionize; that corporate accountability should be a top priority for the future of democracy; and that all people should have access to safe, dignified work. We believe that no one should live in poverty, and that all people should have access to affordable housing, quality food, and a clean environment.

Economic Justice

Human Rights

We believe in human dignity, freedom, equality, and nonviolence within and between societies. We support the right to protest. We believe that equal access to education is a fundamental human right. We support LGBTQIA2S+ rights, disability rights, women’s rights, and freedom of religion.

Human Rights

Open Internet

We believe that, in the 21st century, access to free and open internet is a fundamental human right. We believe that no government or private corporation should infringe on internet freedom.
