THE OFFICE OF

COLLABORATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION 

OVERVIEW

We assisted the Minnesota State government's Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution (OCDR) in promoting their services and demonstrating their impact.

CHALLENGE

OCDR was concerned that the incoming state legislators would disband their department. Through a competitive RFP process, we emerged as the best fit for the job to demonstrate their value, the impact of their work, and how it is done, we through a competitive RFP process.

IMPACT STORY

Watch OCDR's process in action during the aftermath of Philando Castile's murder in the City of Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

STORY STRATEGY

Focus On Humans

Some things are better experienced through our eyes than our ears. 

We needed a Heart of the story to anchor it, walking viewers through OCDR's collaborative problem-solving process. 

We chose John Thompson as the story's Heart because of his connection to Philando Castile and his transformation. John later became a community activist after experiencing OCDR's process.

ANIMATED EXPLAINER

As an alternative to our human-centered impact story, we crafted an animated explainer to demystify their services through engaging visuals and simple language.

THE OUTCOME

Secured Department
Through Proven Value

Our storytelling helped OCDR visually capture the attention of the new state legislators and build trust as a valuable state department worthy of continued funding.

OCDR is still rocking today, continuing its work that bridges divides.
