WHAT WE DO:
PR & PUBLIC AFFAIRS
By refining your message through research, using our trusted relationships with media from Michigan to D.C. and telling your story through interviews, podcast, press conferences, groundbreakings, and more, we get results.
SOCIAL MEDIA & DIGITAL
Using business intelligence and data to target your storytelling to the correct audiences in a world of noise is vital to successful messaging campaigns.
Our team helps with issue management by building bipartisan coalitions of citizens and organizations, conducting ballot initiatives and more to communicate with key decision makers from Lansing to Washington.
CRISIS COMMS & REPUTATION MANAGEMENT
Facing a comms crisis requires a combo of speed and experience that Harbor's team gained in years of advising businesses and political leadership. Anticipating problems and building reputations in good times is a must.
Harbor's experience with legal communications is unequaled after serving two state attorneys general in criminal and civil cases, and working to achieve justice for survivors of abuse in small & large cases.
CLIENTS COUNT ON US. FROM TC TO DC.
Our clients, from Michigan to California, Washington, D.C. and everywhere in between, count on us for PR and Public Affairs strategic planning and delivering results.
Protecting the Economy
Reopen Michigan Safely
We created and led a major coalition of Michigan job creators in a successful campaign to #EndTheOfficeBan and stop temporary restrictions from being a permanent economic burden.
Build It Michigan Strong
Michigan's roads are getting fixed but inflationary costs are eating into our budgets. We created a bipartisan labor and business coalition to support a new statewide aggregates permitting plan.
Elevating Workers' Voices
Save Michigan Restaurants
When the politics around an issue got too loud, we did something novel-- we helped elevate the voices of those most affected. Servers and bartenders spoke out to protect their income.
Sexual Assault Legislation
Survivors of sexual assault deserve a path to justice. We worked with a bipartisan set of legislators and advocates to publicize support for new policy and elevate voices of survivors.
Education & Safety
Change For Oxford
Working with parents, we told the stories of students, moms & dads who wanted to know that their learning environment is safe and community leaders have a plan to make it happen.
Public Safety Millage
Protecting Our Community
When you call 911 in an emergency, you expect to get help. We worked with stakeholders to help emergency responders to be trained and ready to help families in a crisis.
