Pepperdine Caruso Law alumnus Greg Suess (JD/MBA '96), founding partner of Activists Artists Management, is quoted in the Forbes article, "Ben Affleck, Lady Gaga, Garth Brooks Make Case for Kindness In New Doc." The article chronicles the making of the newly released documentary, Case for Kindness, directed by Steven Sawalich. The film explores the impact of kindness on society.

Sawalich talked with Suess about his project, and his need for resources to continue the journey.
“I felt like he was at a lull when we connected,” Suess says. “I followed up the very next day because I was so impressed by what he was doing and I thought, If this was not an Activist project, I didn’t know what was. We have a stadium-level team, and we come to the documentary with same philosophy and we treat Steven like he’s the Grateful Dead or The Lumineers. He’s getting the same thinking and the same relationships.”
Suess got busy reaching out to change makers in the Activist community, including self-made billionaire philanthropist John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products, and billionaire David Steward II, whose Lion Forge Animation Studio created the animation for the film. Like Suess’ own reaction to Case For Kindness, the response consistently was an immediate Yes.
