Clarify your message. Amplify your voice.

Change the world

Take your communications to new heights.

The New Heights team offers backgrounds in all aspects of communications, campaigns, advocacy, and management, bringing an integrated approach to our work. Whether it’s running an advocacy campaign to eliminate the death penalty (we’ve done that), devising and implementing the strategy to win billions for public transit (yep, also us), or telling the stories of #MeToo victims in national outlets (you got it), we’re your team.

We got our start on presidential campaigns, so we believe that the rules of the trail apply to anyone seeking to deliver an impactful message: Tell stories, not policy prescriptions. Define yourself before others define you.  And remember, the toughest fights are often the ones most worth winning.
