Davey Strategies: translating social science and public opinion research into concrete advocacy communications strategies and tools

Davey Strategies

Davey Strategies helps policy experts and scientists improve public understanding of social problems and build support for policy solutions.

As a psychologist who studies how people reason about social problems, and with extensive experience in policy advocacy and data/social indicators, Lynn Davey offers a unique perspective and set of skills to those on the front lines of social change efforts.

Through intensive trainings, original messaging research, and technical assistance Lynn helps scientists and advocates effectively translate their own expertise in ways that improve public understanding and support for policy.

NEWS: I am proud to announce a new product! FramingGPS™ is a smartphone app that puts evidence-based messages right in the hands of front line communicators.

I developed FramingGPS™ to respond to these varied communication contexts that ARE the office-spaces of front-line advocates. Read all about it here!
