Whether your organization is lobbying to move forward a healthcare, financial, energy or other social initiative, we can organize rallies and get media attention for your causes and candidates. We also assist individuals, companies and political organizations with protests and picketing campaigns. We’ve protested governments, corporations and everything in between.
We’ve achieved results on campaigns on everything from ending institutional discrimination in a religious organization to getting refunds and compensation for hundreds of homeowners who bought hazardous land from a real estate firm to forcing a patent trolling company to back down. We have gotten tough energy projects approved from oil to natural gas to wind and solar. We are frequently called upon to address Real Estate issues that, while (in many cases) not heavily covered by the media, are relevant to stakeholders and depend heavily on public opinion. Some of these campaigns are long and drawn out while others can be resolved quickly. Regardless, we endeavor to deliver campaigns that bring out the best qualities of our clients’ messages and to achieve tangible results.
If you need to hire protesters, we can get a crowd on the street, sometimes within 24 hours time. If you need speakers to present at a council meeting, we can provide talented and well-spoken individuals to advocate for the cause. We also have a dedicated team of phone-banking staff who can call Congressional Offices and convince government officials to support your cause and help you overcome opposition. If you need lots of letters and emails written from constituents, we have a network of tens of thousands of individuals across the country who can send well-written constituent letters to their representatives.
We provide a cost-effective way to lobby government to pass or defeat legislation, push for approval of projects, and influence government in a grassroots manner. We are the ultimate guerilla lobbying and government relations firm.
Presidential Public Opinion
A foreign government hired Crowds on Demand to help generate a positive reception for its newly elected leader during the UN General Assembly. The concern was ensuring that the leader was well received by a US audience and confident for his work at the UN. We created demonstrations of support with diverse crowds. We also used the media primarily local and national outlets to bring more attention to these demonstrations which led to a mostly positive portrayal. The crowds that we deployed drew in more supporters creating a strong presence for this leader at the UN and an improved perception of him by the American public.
Blocking New Union Restrictions
Crowds on Demand was hired by multiple large non-union firms to push back against new regulations in a deeply labor-friendly state. We successfully lobbied the legislature and the Labor Commission to push back proposed labor regulations. We created two organizations with associated websites: one conservative site focused on the impact unions have on drastically increasing government spending and one liberal one focused on the racially discriminatory and sexist policies of many unions. We provided phone-bankers and constituent lobby visits associated with the two organizations to lobby conservative and liberal lawmakers and policymakers respectively. Within two months, the proposed regulations were off the table.
Justice for Victims of Deceptive Home Sales
Crowds on Demand was retained by residents of a middle class planned community who had been misled by the homebuilder regarding the actual size of their lots. Per city regulations, their lots all had to be approximately 10% smaller. Crowds on Demand deployed protesters at every sales office of the homebuilder/developer every weekend during peak sales times to hand out flyers and discuss with prospective clients why they should consider buying somewhere else. During the term of our protest, they were unable to sell a single home. Within two months, our clients each received six figure settlements to resolve the matter.
Crippling a Child-Molester Owned BusineSs
Crowds on Demand was hired by the competitor of a large manufacturing business owned by a convicted child molester to cripple his operations. We did this by protesting the business and all of its clients (in an effort to get the clients to cease working with the business). We deployed protesters with signs to the headquarters of all clients and complemented that with a strong phone-banking operation. We even found the phone number of one of the client’s rabbis and used the rabbi to reach the client to tell him to stop doing business with the child molester. Within 3 weeks, all his largest clients had left him and he sold the business to our client for 5% of its previous value.
