Communications Strategy

Granite Integrated Strategies is a bi-partisan strategic communications, advocacy and public affairs firm that specializes in navigating the national media in Washington, DC and on Capitol Hill, providing clients with targeted, creative and effective solutions to communications and public affairs challenges


A strong communications effort must be a part of any effective government or public affairs campaign. The media in Washington, D.C. and on Capitol Hill sets the dialogue that drives policy discussions every day.  At Granite, we work through non-traditional channels to reinforce our clients' advocacy efforts.

Public Affairs

At Granite, we take a unique, campaign style approach to public affairs and communications strategy. As with any campaign, we work with our clients to connect the dots between government affairs, policy and communications strategy in order to achieve success.

Granite co-founders Kristen Hawn and Ali Siciliano are battle tested communications professionals who bring an aggressive and collaborative style to multi-tiered public affairs campaigns.
