Bass Public Affairs (BPA) is a Washington, D.C.-based public affairs firm founded in 2007 by sisters Dee Dee Bass Wilbon and Deana Bass Williams.
BPA specializes in helping organizations impact public discourse by projecting a clear message in the crowded marketplace of ideas. While we partner with a diverse set of organizations that have unique visions of the world they would like to see, our partners are most often:
1. Organizations and individuals that want to impact public discourse for positive change.
2. Organizations and individuals that want to halt the marginalization of Christians and people of faith in politics and culture.
3. Organizations and individuals with altruistic and noble missions designed to advance opportunities in low-income communities.
We help organizations build alliances with potential clients and solidify partnerships with current clients. Whether reaching an audience of one or millions, BPA uses hybrid research and innovative public relations techniques to build coalitions and enhance growth.
