Policy TakeOver

Policy TakeOver Improve. Educate. Involve. Policy TakeOver is an advocacy consulting company.

Policy TakeOver was created with one goal in mind: to improve, involve, and educate the community in advocacy. We are an advocacy consulting company that provides the tools people and organizations need to get their voices heard and spur community involvement. Our services range from bill and amendment drafting to the development of marketing materials such as infographics. In addition, we offer bill and regulatory tracking, keeping clients up to date with bills that are pertinent to them. With these services our clients get their communities and lawmakers involved in making change happen for good. Policy TakeOver has the power to connect clients with their communities and the government without being unaffordable. Traditionally, advocacy consulting groups charge thousands of dollars for the same services we provide. By making our services affordable and accessible, advocacy consulting becomes accessible to a large amount of people. In turn, this means legislators will receive more input from their communities, and community involvement goes up. With us our clients have a voice, and we have already seen positive growth in client’s communities. We are excited to continue leveraging our advocacy campaign expertise for the benefit of our clients.

Mission: Policy TakeOver’s goal is to make professional advocacy and government relations services more affordable and accessible.

Today we at Policy TakeOver remember the life and legacy of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush. Thank you, President Bush, for your advocacy for people with disabilities. On July 26, 1990, President Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is one of America's most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. #GeorgeBush #DayOfRemembrance #disability #ADA #advocacy #disabilityrights #disabilityadvocacy
