Adult Survivors Act
What our clients say about us
Safe Horizon deeply appreciates the thoughtful media strategy that Pythia Public utilized in our efforts to pass the Child Victims Act (2019) and Adult Survivors Act (2022) into law. They elevated the voices of survivors of sexual violence and helped break down misconceptions about when and how survivors disclose their experiences. The Pythia team brought tremendous energy and skill to these campaigns.
Pythia is the hardest-working team of communications professionals we’ve ever worked with. They take on our fights as their own, and their creativity and capability to produce strategic, impactful work with us led to Governor Kathy Hochul passing the first-in-the-nation All Electric Building Act.
Pythia is dedicated to amplifying the stories of those most impacted by climate change in order to humanize policy failures and drive change. The Pythia team played a pivotal role in shaping our approach and success in passing a first-in-the-nation moratorium on fossil-fueled cryptomining and successfully opposing the renewal of Greenidge’s air permit.
