What Sets Us Apart
We Aim to Exceed Expectations
Reputation for developing multicultural outreach campaigns that drive positive change.
We are a full-service public affairs agency specializing in strategic outreach, social justice, community engagement, public participation, regulatory negotiations and media relations.
For over two decades, our business has largely come from (our reputation with) satisfied clients who know from experience that we have the expertise, passion and commitment to meet and surpass their expectations.
Deliver the right message at the right time to the right audience.
We’ll effectively tell your story. We appreciate that your project is unique and our strategies will be customized to meet those needs. From comprehensive programmatic campaigns, to the creation of easily understandable and engaging collateral materials, we help you sustain interest and manage identified areas of risk.
We believe in the power of engaged participation by all potentially affected communities.
Early identification of stakeholders, issues, and areas of resistance are crucial to the success of any project. We create respectful, safe places for people to share their concerns and come up with workable solutions. We specialize in forming and facilitating working groups such as community advisory panels, technical advisory boards, and issue-specific groups to enhance community understanding of project issues.
Leverage regulatory metrics to obtain project approvals.
To achieve your desired outcome, you need a winning regulatory strategy. Working together, we create that strategy, assist in the preparation and review of regulatory materials (applications and requirements), and help resolve regulatory issues (for real estate and environmental remediation projects). We provide regulatory training to educate you and your stakeholders on the decision-making process, metrics used, and how to leverage them.
Our staff has worked for the US EPA, DTSC, and the Water Board and more. Our access to ex-regulators and regulatory executive management and staff helps us complete our goal of getting clients’ projects approved and moving projects towards completion. We facilitate meetings with clients and regulators and utilize strategies that help optimize results.
Our certifications help clients meet their diversity and local spend goals.
