No two clients or assignments are ever alike, but among social change efforts there are many common challenges and leverage points.

We have more than 25 years of experience designing communications programs to advance organizational objectives, influence public policy and foster positive social change. Below are a few examples of clients we admire, and work we’re proud to have done.
“Research. Writing. Strategic thinking. Outreach. No one firm excels at all of these things. Except…Brotherton Strategies does. If you're looking for a smart, true, straight-shooting communications firm, one that not only "gets it," but gets it done, look no further.” — Sean Gibbons, The Communications Network
