SOCIAL IMPACT SOLUTIONS
Nonprofits and Social Impact Leaders that seek education and consulting leverage resources and knowledge to build capacity more effectively than those that go it alone. Nonprofit employees make up the third-largest workforce among U.S. industries, (behind only the retail and food industries, and ranking just above American manufacturing). Contact us to schedule a free 15 minute discovery session to discuss your stragetic social impact solution with mission driven results.
Advocacy may help your nonprofit meet its mission, solve problems, give your cause & clients a voice and strengthen communities. We can help plan your campaign, create awareness, generate engagement, encourage action and sustain the momentum.
Our advocacy has included petitioning state and city governments on behalf of nonprofits resulting in Proclamations for Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, Autism Awareness Week, Nonprofit Awareness Month, and National Arts and Humanities Month.
We have successfully advocated for anti-human trafficking legislation for bipartisan policy solution, resulting Iowa anti-human trafficking legislation: SF 2219 established felonies of human trafficking for Iowa and provided affirmative defense for victims.
NONPROFIT AWARENESS MONTH
Nonprofit Awareness Month celebrates the value of nonprofits and expands the public understanding of the important role they play in building healthy vibrant communities. Colorado Governor Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Hancock accepted our drafted Proclamation for Colorado and City of Denver's first ever Nonprofit Awareness Month 2017 and Mayor Lyes for Charlotte, NC 2019.
NATIONAL ARTS AND HUMANITIES MONTH
Our drafted Proclamation for National Arts and Humanities Month was accepted and made an official Proclamation by North Carolina Governor Cooper October 2018. National Arts and Humanities Month brings awareness to create a national, state and local focus on the arts, film and the humanities and provides an opportunity for federal, state and local business, government and civic leaders to declare their support for the arts and humanities.
