communication that can change minds

amy-lynn-smith

I’m an expert in creating content to influence and inform. I’m also determined to make a difference. Which is what issue advocacy and public interest communication is all about.

Whether you’re a nonprofit, foundation, communications agency or individual working to make the world a better place, I can plan and execute a cohesive, compelling multi-media messaging strategy. I have deep expertise in healthcare reform and advocacy, but work on many issues I’m passionate about including refugee rights, equity for people who are visually impaired, women’s issues, LGBTQ rights and much more.

My digital and field organizing experience with the Obama 2012 campaign as Michigan Deputy Digital Director and a Team Organizer gives me a unique skill set. I’m well-suited to telling the story of an organization’s efforts in the field because I have the advantage of first-hand experience. Plus, I can combine communications and community organizing for highly effective outcomes.

Here’s one testimonial that demonstrates exactly how my combined skills — particularly storytelling — can engage people, motivate action and deliver results.
