Why Advocacy Strategies

We Are Connected. We are well connected with local, state and federal policymakers, public officials, state agencies, community leaders, state regulatory boards, non-profits, and businesses across the Iowa and beyond. Our team utilizes every opportunity to build relationships with everyone from elected officials to grassroots advocates.

Our Experience is Diverse. Combined, our lead staff members have worked for leading nonprofits, multi-client lobbying firm, prominent community development organizations, the State of Iowa, a Fortune 50 company, the Governor’s Office and in the Iowa Senate.

We Are Nonpartisan. Unlike many government relations and public affairs firms, we have friends on both sides of the aisle. We build relationships with a wide variety of people to make progress on the issues we embrace for our clients. We’re open and honest in our communication and we carefully position our messages to build consensus among both Democrats and Republicans. Our ultimate responsibility is to our clients, not to the advancement of a political party.

We Want to Serve You. We are committed to building the strongest professional relationship with each of our clients.
