Bowen Public Affairs Consulting was started by activist Andrea (Andy) Bowen in late 2017, with the aim of providing policy* expertise and advocacy for nonprofits and government, all with the broader goal of furthering social justice. She is primarily focused on New York City and State, but will consider action in other localities, and has proven her ability to adapt to differing political contexts.
Andy is experienced and successful at a holistic process of policy articulation: she works with organizations, community members, coalition members–any body of public-minded people–to develop actionable policy proposals, drawn from the experiences of the people she works for, informed by research, and articulated with the kinds of practical details that policymakers seek. From there, she utilizes relationships with people in government to ensure whatever policy ideas you want to put in circulation will be seen and put into action.
Andy can also simply draft policy advocacy documents for your organization to use however it sees fit, advocate for policy ideas that your organization has already developed, or conduct trainings related to policy. At any point in the advocacy process, Andy is available to support you.
To check out Andy’s track record, see the About section and the Testimonials. If you’re interested in our work, contact Andy via andy [at] bowenpublicaffairs.com, or just write us via our Contact section.
*When we say “policy,” we really mean “policy and budget.” That said, “policy and budget” is a bit of a cumbersome phrase, so we’re simplifying our language.
