Joanne IrbyChief Operating Officer
Our firm brings together a diverse team of professionals with deep roots in law, advocacy and progressive public policy. Our mission is to improve public policy. Our creative and substantive approach sets us apart.
We don’t just open doors, we learn substance. We tackle public policy problems by understanding them from the ground up—and then we design custom-tailored solutions that reach far beyond the Beltway and “plain vanilla” lobbying.
It often takes—dare we say it?—a village to change public policy. We specialize in building bipartisan coalitions of allies (sometimes unlikely ones) to help achieve our clients’ goals.
The New America is a reality we live every day. As a majority-minority firm, we share a commitment to equality and justice. We work with clients who share our conviction that these values can and should unite us.
We’re committed to doing work we can believe in—and to doing it well. Whether the client is a small non-profit, a leading foundation or a Fortune 50 company, we work with people who feel the same way.
Changing the world begins with a conversation. Bagels and coffee also help. Our policy breakfast series attracts some of the most thoughtful people in politics, media and advocacy to discuss issues of the day.
