About Us

Our founder

Joel Foster has helped progressive organizations, labor unions, elected officials, and candidates gain and effectively utilize power for over two decades. 

Our philosophy

Building power doesn't happen in Washington, DC. It happens in Denver and Des Moines and Dallas, in Richmond and Reno. We believe in building power where it matters and doing it in a way that will last beyond a single election cycle.

Our specialties

We help build power in the following ways:

  • Ballot measure campaign consulting
  • Candidate campaign consulting
  • Organizational assessment and strategic planning
  • Strategic policy analysis
  • Longterm policy vision planning
  • Facilitation and training
