CHICAGO – Resolute Consulting is working with a dynamic team of 18 Chicago public affairs and communications firms who have come together to harness the energy and passion of Chicagoans to support the city’s bid for Amazon’s HQ2.
The People’s Pitch “We’re All In for Amazon” campaign captures the voices from all corners of Chicago who proudly say they are “All In for Amazon.” Spanning all 77 neighborhoods, these include residents, tech innovators, faith leaders, kid coders, business and community leaders and cultural icons.
The campaign is building public momentum with the recent launch of a new website www.ChicagoIsAllIn.com that features what HQ2 will mean for Chicagoans and the release of new video that features Chicagoans who share why they are All In for Amazon.
The video captures testimonials from community, business, cultural, labor and educational leaders who believe there is no city but Chicago for Amazon HQ2. Appearances include Chicago Bears Coach Matt Nagy, Chicago Shakespeare Theater Founder and Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, Little Village Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jaime di Paulo, Olive-Harvey College President Felicia Davis, CEO of the AIDS Foundation John Peller, Founder and CEO of the Black Ensemble Theater and the Kuma’s Corner team. The video can be found on YouTube here and can be downloaded here.
“The campaign message is simple: If Amazon selects Chicago for HQ2, they will be overwhelmingly welcomed by Chicagoans in every neighborhood,” said Greg Goldner, Chief Executive Officer of Resolute Consulting. “Resolute is honored to work with other top public affairs firms on this one-of-a-kind campaign to amplify the public support for HQ2 throughout the city.”
The “We’re All In” campaign is building a team of supporters who believe Chicago is the place for Amazon’s HQ2. A $5 billion investment in our economy and 50,000 jobs are just two reasons why. HQ2 will generate new revenue for our neighborhoods and create an economic game changer for city residents and families.
In the next few weeks, the People’s Pitch will launch a citywide contest to build the “Ultimate Chicago Itinerary” for Amazon officials when they visit Chicago.
The People’s Pitch is encouraging Chicagoans to visit www.ChicagoIsAllIn.com and sign up to show their support.
