We are committed to a creative and substantive approach to public policy advocacy that reaches far beyond the Beltway and straight-up access lobbying. Whether we’re helping a non-profit retool their entire organizational strategy, passing legislation or moving public opinion about a policy problem, our clients take advantage of a suite of services designed uniquely for them.
Advocacy -- Our wide networks and deep roots in government and public affairs give us connections to influencers across the nation. From the halls of Capitol Hill to the board rooms of Palo Alto, our relationships get your calls answered and your meetings taken.
Coalition Building -- Our expertise is in bringing together unlikely partners that share a common goal. From connecting bibles to badges to business (read more about our work with the National Immigration Forum) to finding ways for Fortune 500 companies and civil rights groups to partner on C-suite level diversity, our team connects the dots--and the people--to build something better than the status quo.
Media Relations -- From setting up a meeting with your local editorial board to having some of the most respected newsrooms in the nation hear your story, our team can help you hone your message, tighten your pitch, and forge lasting relationships with the media.
Strategic Planning -- At The Raben Group, we define strategy as the underlying logic of an organization. When that logic is untested or fails to direct other organizational decisions, including tactics and resource allocation, dysfunction arises. We have a record of success managing strategic planning processes for organizations of all sizes over schedules ranging from three weeks to ten years, with courtesy, directness, insight, and a sense of humor.
Strategic Communications -- It’s not just what you’re saying, it’s knowing who you’re talking to, and how. We take all the good work you do and ensure it’s communicated to best achieve your goals. Our communications professionals draw on a wealth of experience to create the greatest impact. The Raben Group helps our nonprofit, foundation, corporate, and government clients focus on the critical thinking, analysis, and practical skills essential to developing and implementing communications strategies that advance an organization’s goals and mission.
