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 20 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.

“Brotherton Strategies helped Barr reach a new level of visibility and effectiveness. They also provided support as we built much needed internal capacity for communications.”

Barr Foundation

The Barr Foundation works with extensive networks throughout Boston and beyond to advance its vision of a vibrant, just and sustainable world. We helped the Foundation design and execute a communications strategy to guide its transition from anonymous grantmaker into a more public facing and impactful role. We also supported communications around Barr’s Fellows program, climate change initiative and their work with the Boston Green Ribbon Commission.
