Glenn Backes is an activist, writer and registered lobbyist representing progressive non-profits in the California State Capitol since 2001. He has worked behind the scenes with some of the most effective Senators and Assembly members in the last 12 years.

Glenn works with his clients and community members through each and every step—from the identifying the problem and solutions—to the drafting legislative language, and finding trusted lawmakers to collaborate to push a bill to the Governor’s desk.

Glenn helps plan your media strategy, outreach efforts, community involvement, testimony before committee, research and writing, and how each piece contributes to, or can detract from, your success in passing legislation.

Nobody wins every time in the Capitol, no matter what they say, or the list of corporations they represent.  Glenn Backes has an impressive track record of winning for his clients, while maintaining the highest ethical standards, and his unyielding commitment to social justice and good government.
