people. purpose. progress.

People-first PR working for healthy communities and a thriving planet.

In 1987, Vanguard’s founders put an ideological stake in the ground: Let’s
leverage the power of public relations for social change.

Today, we collaborate with nonprofit organizations and government agencies to build opportunity, promote healthy behaviors, protect our environment and connect communities.

Our Hispanic woman-owned PR and social marketing firm has been working for more than 30 years to open hearts and minds about issues and individuals, and realize a more inclusive and equitable world.

How do we approach our work? By being people-first. For us, this means we put our clients, their audiences, our co-workers and our partners at the center of our decisions.

Services

When it comes to the nuts and bolts of PR, we’ve got it … and then some. Our services integrate the principles of social marketing so that every strategy we develop begins with the audience, applies available research and has the potential to change behavior. This approach, coupled with our high standard of customer service, ensures that clients have a partner, not a vendor. Our value lies in being accessible and transparent, bringing our A game every day, thinking of your interests even “off the clock” and always telling you what we really think.
