When the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) received a request to help raise awareness about the value of water on social media, staff responded.

In August, the H2duO — Arianne Shipley and Stephanie Zavala — asked water organizations to contribute to a #OneWater lip-sync video. The call for videos, sent during #NationalWaterQualityMonth, asked water professionals to join other public sectors in the #lipsyncchallenge.

Recently, the series of social media videos have called attention to public services and public employees, primarily police and firefighters. Shipley and Zavala wanted to highlight water services around the world and the people working to protect and supply this resource to communities.

Rahkia Nance, WEF’s digital communications manager, created a script, coordinated locations and props for different segments of the video, and got to filming. Six other staff members — Megan Livak, Scott Wilson, Kelsey Hurst, Jennifer Fulcher, Ayyaantu Abduselam, and Camille Sanders — showed up to mouth the words to the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell song, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
