Policy Brand Research

How does policy get made in practice and what are the bottlenecks in the process? What are the most helpful contributions that advocates can provide, and how can they deliver them in an effective manner?

We want to speak with you to get your insight and to make our research as beneficial to policymakers as possible. If you see any part of our research and findings that you agree or disagree with, let us know and we’d love to learn from your experiences.

Our mission is to enhance the efficiency of the policymaking process, and create more productive dialogue between the various players involved in crafting and shaping laws and regulation so everyone can more effectively represent their constituents. Policy Brand Research has engaged in over five years of research to investigate effective communication and advocacy in Washington and in a growing number of states in order to create a better understanding of what works—and what doesn’t—in public policy advocacy.


Our Collaborators

We engage with a broad and diverse audience of individuals involved in the policymaking process, including Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, elected officials and senior staffers in the Legislative Branch, career staff and appointees within the Executive Branch, and think tank and advocacy professionals in the private sector.
