Pierce Communications looks at public affairs backwards.

Rather than determine the best way that an organization can communicate, we begin by looking at and understanding the organization’s stakeholders and influencers and how they like to receive messages, and then approach the communications equation from their point of view.

We help our clients engage these stakeholders in a variety of ways, including working with local, state and national media; developing and implementing grassroots campaigns; organizing research and engaging directly with stakeholders through public meetings and other forums. We incorporate social media to build relationships and engage grassroots supporters through e-advocacy and the traditional media.

Our public affairs work includes work for state and national associations, Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and coalitions. Whether you need help communicating with your neighbors, explaining your position, educating the media or reaching elected officials, Pierce Communications’ public affairs team can help.

On behalf of the Food Industry Alliance of New York, Pierce Communications brought “the grapes of math” to the New York State Capitol to explain to New York’s elected leaders and the media why selling wine in supermarkets makes good fiscal sense.
