When the conversation is about regulation or legislation

GPG’s Policy Advocacy team helps organizations navigate the world of federal legislation and regulation.

We work with our clients to define their priorities and positions. We use research to create sharp messages and attention-grabbing advertising. We change minds and drive actions on the biggest issues of the day.

We’re experts at shepherding your message through the labyrinth of government. Our lobbyists come from the halls of Congress, the White House and regulatory agencies. …

Our work is often invisible. But the results speak for themselves.

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse is the author, most recently, of  They’re Not Even Close: The Democratic vs. Republican Economic Records, 1910-2010, and of  CHRIST’S VENTRILOQUISTS: The Event that Created Christianity.
