Inspiring civic engagement and advocacy in Los Angeles and beyond.
PAID CIVIC HOURS
2022 - Present
Employees shouldn’t have to choose between voting and getting paid.
All OBB Media employees receive paid civic hours to vote in state and federal elections during election windows in either the early voting period or on Election Day.
Understanding the nationwide poll worker shortage, employees also receive paid civic hours to serve as poll workers in their communities to do their part in making sure we have safe, fair, and efficient elections.
I AM A VOTER.
AMC Theatres | PSA | 2022
OBB Cares is proud to partner with I am a voter., a nonpartisan movement that aims to create a cultural shift around voting and civic engagement by unifying around a central truth: our democracy works best when we all participate.
We teamed up with Hailey Bieber, I am a voter., and AMC Theatres to produce a PSA that encouraged audiences to vote early and on Election Day. The spot was played before films in all AMC Theatres nationwide in the month leading up to the 2022 general election, reaching millions of people in a crucial window for voter turnout.
The PSA was also shared across Hailey’s Instagram and YouTube channels, amplifying the call to action to vote and was the highest traffic video on socials for I am a voter. to date.
Through I am a voter.’s mobile organizing tool, OBB Cares also created a specialized code - text OBBVOTES to 26797 - where audiences can text in to make sure they’re registered to vote and get reminders for all of their elections.
We activated the text call to action on I am a voter.’s annual Register A Friend Day campaign, and around key moments and Civic Holidays like National Voter Registration Day and Vote Early Day.

FLEX VOTE CENTER
Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, OBB Cares and OBB Studios teamed up with the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk office to host a Flex Vote Center, which is part of an LA County program that focuses on providing more accessible voting options to historically under-resourced communities.
We hosted a Flex Vote Center at OBB Studios during the early voting phase to encourage our employees and neighbors in Hollywood to vote early.
