ABOUT

Engaging people + communities

LRG Public Affairs was founded in 1996 with a single contract and a staff of three. Twenty years later, LRG has grown into a full-service professional services company with 50 people and more than 100 clients focused on our core mission: engaging people and communities.

As a SBA-certified HUBZone small business and federal GSA-schedule contractor, we support a wide range of organizations in the government, nonprofit and private sectors with communication, outreach, event services and organizational development. LRG is among the top 10 public relations firms in the Washington, D.C., area according to the Washington Business Journal.

LRG’s team is dedicated to making a difference for individuals, families and communities around the world. For 20 years, that’s what has driven our work – and impact – with nonprofit organizations, private sector partners and the numerous federal agencies. Every day, we work on the ground with veterans and military families in their communities to make sure they get the support they have earned. We help under-served youth who are working hard for the training they need to be successful. We work alongside the dedicated servants saving lives through critical public health initiatives in the United States and abroad. And that’s just the start. Whatever the project, LRG stays focused on its mission: to create impact and change by engaging people and communities.

LRG IN ACTION

It’s one of the largest events put on by the federal government and they turned to LRG to make it happen. The 2016 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment is a weeklong event that attracted an audience of more than 2,400 people.
LRG IN ACTION

Everyday, LRG staff are on the front lines of supporting service members making the transition to civilian life ready for a career. Working for the U.S. Veteran’s Administration, LRG supports the vision of Veteran’s Opportunity to Work/Hire Heroes Act by providing training service members in ten locations around the country.
LRG IN ACTION

It’s not an easy task to tell the story of the people and organizations who support our military service members and families in communities around the country. The Association of Defense Communities turned to LRG’s talented writers, editors and designers to create a new magazine, "America’s Defense Communities," in less than three months.

World TB Day highlights USAID’s efforts to eradicate a deadly disease that affects a third of the world’s population, and LRG plays a lead role sharing this story as the strategic communication advisor.
