The lines separating public relations, grassroots and grasstops advocacy, and community and government relations are—at best—blurred. Proactive, productive issues management is about integration and coordination across sectors – identifying target audiences, tailoring messaging and approach, recruiting the right mix of partners and stakeholders, creating internal and external pressure, and ultimately, making positive change.
Our team of public affairs experts deploys the right mix of strategic communications planning and messaging, coalition building and management, community organizing, grassroots, grasstops, and e-advocacy, public opinion and market research, policy development, and political involvement to steer a successful public affairs campaign from start to finish.
Government relations and lobbying isn’t what it used to be. That’s a good thing.
It’s about more than access. At Advocacy Solutions, we combine deep public policy expertise with smart, sophisticated strategies aimed at reaching the right policymakers at the right time. We take the time to understand the issue, combine years of experience navigating the halls of government with real-time analysis of the political, social, and economic dynamics of the day, proactively prepare our approach, and execute strategies that are successful – while building and maintaining key relationships.
By providing strategic government relations counsel, direct lobbying, legislative tracking and analysis, as well as grassroots and electronic advocacy, we help to protect and advance our clients’ interests.
