CARBÓ STRATEGIC CONSULTING
DELIVERS THE TRUST AND EXPERTISE
TO ADVANCE PROGRESSIVE POLICY CHANGE

Steven Carbó brings over 25 years experience at the national, state and local levels as an advocate and policy expert in voting rights and election administration, civic engagement, criminal justice and other fundamental democracy issues.

THE CHALLENGE

Limited staffing and heavy workloads often hinder private foundations and nonprofit organizations that promote progressive public policies — particularly when confronted with emergent crises or presented with new opportunities. They need experienced and trusted professionals to accurately size up challenges and opportunities, advise them on resource needs and funding support and provide expert technical support.

THE CSC SOLUTION

We conduct landscape analyses of state and local policy change opportunities, identify resource needs  and make funding recommendations. We build and manage multistakeholder coalitions and collaborations between state and national organizations. We conduct policy research and draft  policy briefs, legislative proposals and talking points. We provide technical assistance and support.

THE CSC PHILOSOPHY

Carbo´ Strategic Consulting is driven by a strong commitment to justice and equity. Our approach is highly collaborative, congenial and respectful – traits that colleagues regularly commend in their assessment of our work. We promote local leadership and facilitate racial, ethnic and gender inclusion.
