Consensus & Coalition Building
In our contemporary climate of interest-group activism, and organized community response to public issues, the traditional model of lobbying is often insufficient to ensure success in government relations. Decision makers want to know what their constituents think, and how an issue will unfold "on the ground." DSO achieves results because we are adept at managing the convergence of interests that shape public policy. We know the policy makers and we know the constituent groups who are important to them. We have a strong track record of building coalitions of civic, business, community, and ecumenical interests to demonstrate public support for a project or program.
