What exactly does Gallatin Public Affairs do? People often ask. Its a great question. So we thought we'd answer, one email at a time.
When The Portland Business Alliance wanted to give their members and the community a platform to speak out on city homeless policies, they asked Gallatin for help. Together we created Portland Can Do Better, an online advocacy initiative and microsite that told the story of the very human toll of the problem. The site included an advocacy tool making it easy for people to express concern directly to elected officials. In early 2016, the campaign generated more than 14,000 emails from advocates to city hall, keeping the issue of homelessness at the top of the political agenda. It was so effective that The Alliance was recently awarded the national Communications Excellence Best in Show award from the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) for the campaign’s outstanding content, design, execution and success.
