Frame Analysis

If you want to engage your audience and shift public debate, you will need to identify the mental models that shape how people see the world. Understanding the semantic frames – also known as mental models – that shape how different communities understand the issue is the key to any successful campaign.

Policy Briefings

Getting people to care about your issues and winning broad-based support for your objectives is very difficult.  Our policy briefs provide a better understanding of the landscape in which you operate, the underlying progressive psychology that drives people to be passionate about your mission, and what turns them off to it.
