Incredible things, said by incredible people

I hired G2G to manage an important advocacy campaign for our organization and over 60 organizational members of our statewide coalition in Ohio. G2G created a comprehensive government affairs strategy that covered organizing a grassroots campaign, writing legislation, securing legislative champions, planning events with public officials, developing messages for the legislature and media, tracking what was happening in the legislature and advising our team on when to engage and deliver the right message at the right time to have meaningful impact, and maintaining regular and clear communications with me. Thanks to the G2G team being so strategic, hardworking, thorough, and well-connected, we were effective in raising our profile, shaping the legislative process, developing new relationships with decision-makers, and securing funding in the biennial budget.

The G2G team is smart, passionate and determined to succeed."
