QUALITY FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE SERVICES
ACHIEVING BIPARTISAN SUCCESS
What We Do
Uncorked Advocates provides clients with high quality legislative and advocacy support in Washington, D.C. to open up and "uncork" their impact with Congress and federal agencies.
WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S ISSUES (PARTICULARLY GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE)
NONPROFIT TAX AND PENSION ISSUES
Uncorked Advocates was started after the 2016 election with the idea to help nonprofits "uncork" their ability to be heard by national policymakers to better support their mission and communities. Charitable groups deserve to be heard by policymakers and polling in early 2016 among voters in swing states found overwhelming support for the charitable sector to work with the federal government to produce more effective and efficient solutions to problems. #united4charity
This need for Congress to understand the unique value of nonprofits to the public and private sector has never been greater. Uncorked Advocates is working hard on behalf of its clients to achieve relief during the COVID-19 crisis. The firm successfully secured millions of dollars in support for its clients in the first CARES Act stimulus package.
