Luna Community Consulting: Meta-Analysis for Macro Results



Luna Community Consulting IS NOT a political consulting agency. We don’t help you win elections or campaigns. We can help you think about why you are running for office, why you are working on a campaign, why you are in business, all through the prism of your relationship to our community. We are a Community-Building resource dedicated to helping you and your organization learn about and explore your connectivity to other groups and organizations across our broader communities. Find out about our organization and mission, our methods, and the results of our decades of advocacy and analysis of community and politics in the San Diego region.
