“Mira’s approach to campaigns is exactly what our movement needs – she emphasizes bringing people together to build power, using the opportunity of the campaign to do it. Organizing, field, messaging, making the trains run on time – she does it all. Her combination of sharp political instincts and tactical skills make her an incredible strategist for campaigns and organizations that want to do more than win.”

– Ada BriceƱo, Orange County Democratic Party Chair and Co-President of UNITE HERE Local 11

We design winning strategies for social justice, advocacy, labor and membership organizations.

LA teachers and education activists build a strategy for education justice.

To achieve lasting change, our plans must be strategic – win in the moment and build power for the future. Think “member power” when you think “advocacy.”

We win campaigns.

One-third of the campaign trifecta: people!

A winning campaign plan is about three things: people, time and money. Let’s work together to make the best use of all three – and win!

We facilitate the difficult conversations.

Justice means more than passing some new laws or a better recruitment process. To live out our values of equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging we must unlearn what we think is normal. Our white supremacy disruption programs are custom-designed, based on building relationships, unlearning harmful traditions and building new culture. Warning: light bulb moments ahead.

Our individual and small group coaching helps you “think out loud.”

From beginner to expert, all organizers need some support. From applying new skills to thinking through challenges, a thought partner can make a good campaign great. Our coaching support uses the foundational tool of organizing – one-on-one meetings – to help organizers build their practice, guide them through challenges and inspire the best ideas.

We train your staff, members and volunteers to create justice. 

Teachers and education activists practice organizing skills during a session of a monthly organizing training series.

Culturally sensitive, interactive and inspiring, our capacity-building sessions range from 15-minute drills to move undecided voters to comprehensive training for major campaigns and everything in between.

We help you message your values to connect authentically with your audience.

Authentic stories connect members, volunteers, voters and donors to an organization, campaign and even to each other. We help you sound like a person, not a news release.
