Our team doesn’t just advise and support. We’re also out there ourselves, offering our expertise on the media and political landscapes that we’re helping to shift. We are advocates and commentators who learn as we do. We’re proud of our voice and–even more so–using that voice to support the work of our partners and clients. We’ve been in the green room before election night, written pieces that help shift the Overton window, and been part of the battle for a more equitable democracy.
