We are experienced policy advocates and organizers on behalf of communities of color, and understand that the best policies and programs are informed by the communities most impacted by social and racial injustice. Whether you are an organization seeking to navigate the legislative or campaign process, or an agency seeking greater connection to community, we thrive when building transformative relationships and strategic partnerships between policymakers and the communities they serve.
We are dedicated to advancing political representation reflective of our communities, and engaging underrepresented communities in the political process.
