Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA)
The 2022 GOP candidate for PA governor, Doug Mastriano aimed to cut the state’s education budget in half. PSEA — a member org of 100K+ PA education professionals — set out to spread the word about the proposed cuts on a short timeline, under the legal constraints of c3 member messaging.
PSEA faced the challenge of communicating the magnitude and severity of Mastriano’s proposed cuts on a short timeline, under the legal constraints of member messaging (no partisan message could go to non-PSEA members) and in the midst of a highly competitive midterm election where resources and attention ran scarce across the board.
DBT helped creatively humanize the statistics, from potential staff cuts to student-to-teacher ratio hikes.
Building off the reality that nano-influencers have high trust & strong engagement, DBT emphasized local messengers and produced:
The result? More than 13 million impressions served across video, display, and audio on social media, podcast, and programmatic advertising – and a PSEA-approved governor!
