Creating lasting and meaningful change.
Our roots are in the halls of government – from Congress and the executive branch to city hall. Our namesake, former Congressman Henry Waxman, delivered landmark legislation that made health care fairer and more affordable, made our air and water cleaner and our government more responsive to the needs of its people. And this passion for sculpting smart, workable and politically viable policy continues in the work we do each day.
We understand how government works and what levers must be pulled to reach your policy goals. Our team of seasoned experts are your eyes and ears on Capitol Hill and in regulatory agencies. We know that for changes to last, smart policymaking must be part of the conversation – and that exterior pressure for change needs allies on the inside who know how the system works. Whether it’s expanding access to critical health solutions, making drug pricing fairer, or ensuring industries are held accountable for environmental harm, our team of policy experts works every day to help shape the legislation that will continue the march of progress.
But policy changes don’t end at the marble steps of Congress – we also see the role that corporations and NGOs can play in solving problems through thoughtful internal policies. Our policy team also works closely with our skilled advocacy leaders to ensure that policies made in the public interest are brought to the table in the rooms where decisions are made.

I have spent my career advocating for and implementing policies that improve our healthcare system and ensure access to needed health care. Whether working in government or as an advocate for a worthy cause, I am proud to have helped champion effective, responsive policy in the public interest.
