Case Histories

Legal Aid and Defender Association – We’ve served Detroit-based Legal Aid and Defender Association, Inc. (LAD), the largest provider of free civil legal services to low-income residents of Michigan, for several years, especially in the area of media relations, including publicity and crisis communications. We’ve generated extensive publicity for LAD in the news media in metropolitan Detroit, including the legal press, daily and weekly newspapers, and news radio and television, through news releases, interviews and news conferences. The latest news conference featured U.S. Rep. John Conyers, Jr. and James L. Sandman, president of the federal Legal Services Corporation (LSC), announcing a major technology grant from LSC.

Detroit Press Club Foundation – We led a team from Individual Communicators Network that helped the Detroit Press Club Foundation reinstate its Michigan Excellence in Journalism Competition for professional and college journalists throughout the state. The project included developing the categories and criteria for the competition; recruiting a panel of judges from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University; developing a media database and soliciting entries from journalists; planning and conducting an awards ceremony; and publicizing the results of the competition in the news media throughout Michigan.

St. Andrew House – Center for Orthodox Christian Studies – We helped plan, promote and conduct two colloquia for Detroit-based St. Andrew House – Center for Orthodox Christian Studies to introduce interested Anglicans and Lutherans, particularly clergy, to the Orthodox Christianity faith. Activities included planning the events; securing a Catholic retreat center to host them; recruiting speakers; promoting the events; identifying and inviting attendees; arranging for online radio station Ancient Faith Radio to record and broadcast colloquia sessions; and serving as master of ceremonies.

Council of Orthodox Christian Churches of Metropolitan Detroit – We’ve served the Council of Orthodox Christian Church of Metropolitan Detroit (COCC), a 55-year-old clergy and lay association that represents various canonical Orthodox churches in the area, for several years, especially in the areas of media relations and special events. We’ve generated extensive publicity for COCC events in the national Orthodox news media and in the secular media in metropolitan Detroit. Recently we promoted a COCC-sponsored concert by the Orthodox Choir of Metropolitan Detroit to benefit International Orthodox Christian Charities by free publicity in the media and by paid promotional spots on WRCJ Radio FM 90.9 in Detroit that we scripted and funded as a donation.
