Big Stories, Big Impact 

When you work with RK Communications, you talk. We listen. Then we help you tell your story, by placing news and feature stories, creating eye-catching ads and infographics, crafting social media campaigns, and developing a media strategy to make it all hang together. 

A few highlights:

· When COVID-19 upended the American workplace, we placed leaders from the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH) on Rachel MaddowGood Morning America and other platforms to highlight how workers can stay safe from infectious disease.

· In 2020, American democracy was on the line. We worked with the Democracy Initiative to place interviews in the Washington PostNew York TimesLos Angeles TimesAssociated Press about secure voting for all voters. 

· Love wins: Working with Michigan for Marriage, we placed wall-to-wall media coverage across the state following the Supreme Court’s June 2015 ruling in favor of marriage equality. Thanks to advance planning and media training for couples and advocates, we organized five news conferences in five cities within 90 minutes of the historic announcement.
