Sometimes being in the right place at the right time can completely change the dynamic. At the Delaney Policy Group, we have been reflecting on a recent experience that was emblematic of that.
One of our clients, the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, has been working with survivors of homicide victims for thirty years. Local officials, community workers, public safety and victims’ rights advocates have worked with, and relied upon their services in the Greater Boston area for decades. However, like many community engaged non-profits, they were highly utilized but underrecognized (and underfunded). Despite being highly respected in their arena, they struggled with getting support that was in line with their capacity.
Andrea D. of Delaney Policy Group recognized the problem and more importantly saw an opportunity for a solution. Mayor Michelle Wu was participating in a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce government affairs forum which would bring together key leaders in business, philanthropy, nonprofits and government. The event was sold out, but Andrea realized that the opportunity of being in that room was too big for the Peace Institute to miss. We had tickets for DPG but we needed an additional ticket.
Andrea gave up her ticket to allow for Clementina Chéry to attend. (We were later able to wrangle a ticket so that Andrea was in the room as well). The Mayor, having worked with Chaplain Chery over the years, went off script in the middle of her comments to recognize the chaplain. The mayor said, “There is someone in this room who I’d like to highlight who has been doing [trauma support] as a non-profit leader for a long time.” She also highlighted for those in the room that the Peace Institute was literally part of the infrastructure of Boston and that they were in the midst of a $25 million capital project raise.
Due to being in the right place at the right time, the Peace Institute was able to make critical connections with philanthropists and government officials. Those connections have leveraged into funding opportunities and substantive meetings with high-ranking officials.
Many lobbying firms will represent clients but not take the extra step to place them in spaces where they can advance to the next level. This happens even more frequently when the clients are Black and Brown led groups where the instinct is to “speak for” the client rather than help them engage.
The Delaney Policy Group is Massachusetts only state-certified Minority Business Enterprise government relations firm. We have a different approach than most firms and it leads to different and more impactful outcomes.
