We sought first and foremost to grow advocates and increase public awareness and support for the Atlantic Sunrise Project. To engage audiences, we provided information about the benefits of natural gas, local community giving efforts and general project updates on the project’s social media channels, while also combating misinformation being spread by the opposition. Our digital and social advertising efforts drove advocates to take actions like signing up to support the project.
