When you work with BCF, you get a full-service firm that partners with you and executes on all aspects of your campaign: strategy, public opinion research, advertising, communications, earned media, coalition building/grassroots and digital advocacy.
Public Affairs & Issue Advocacy
Whether your issue is before the Legislature, Administration, local government, a regulatory agency or board, the BCF team specializes in framing complex public policy matters in ways that are compelling to the public in order to influence key decision makers.
Ballot Measure Campaigns
BCF has managed many of the state’s highest-profile and challenging ballot measure campaigns, navigating large come-from-behind wins for our clients. We’ve managed nationally-recognized ballot measure campaigns where the stakes were existential for our clients. Our win record over the past two decades is better than 95%. We couple our extensive understanding of California’s diverse electorate with our deep knowledge and application of data and analytics to engineer winning strategies for our clients.

Coalition & Grassroots Advocacy
We are the “go to” California firm for coalition building and grassroots advocacy. We know how to frame your issue and appeal to the self-interest of the third-party groups necessary to turn the tide. We turn coalitions into grassroots armies – by giving allies the tools to make it easy for them to take action and influence public policy outcomes.
We help our clients approach the media in a strategic way, with a message and messenger that resonates. BCF knows how to help you manage your message across the broad range of traditional and digital media channels. We also offer media trainings for all levels of spokespersons – including CEOs, high-level executives, state and local politicians and novice spokespeople.
Crisis Communication & Reputation Management
Your immediate response to a crisis can be the difference between containment and moving beyond or losing complete control. Whether you are anticipating a storm, in the eye of the storm, or want to optimize your crisis preparedness, our team can help. We have counseled CEOs and high-level corporate and trade association executives to successfully navigate high profile crises to preserve their reputation.
BCF is steeped in constantly-evolving digital best practices. We devise digital campaigns that are creative and reach the desired audience most effectively. We manage lower-budget digital campaigns targeting key decision makers as well as large-scale digital efforts necessary to persuade the entire California electorate.
Our team can help you devise and execute creative, highly-effective advertising campaigns that are targeted at your key audiences. We help oversee a full suite of advertising and direct voter communications from creative to placement, including TV, digital, radio and direct mail.
