Client Successes

Cerrell Helps Environmental Coalition Stop Toll Road

The Save San Onofre Coalition hired Cerrell Associates, as part of a larger consultant team, to stop a private toll road from slicing through the fifth most popular state park in California, San Onofre State Beach. Cerrell developed and implemented a comprehensive earned media strategy for a multi-pronged opposition campaign to stop the toll road. This successful campaign received local, regional, national and international media coverage. We were called upon to implement rapid-response and crisis management on a regular basis to combat a well-funded opposition that spent millions on a high-profile public relations and advocacy campaign.
