ReThink Media is a unique nonprofit media shop dedicated exclusively to building the communications and messaging capacity of non-profit think tanks, advocacy organizations, experts and allies working toward a more constructive U.S. foreign policy, in support of human and civil rights, and to strengthen our democracy. The organizations we serve represent the foremost leaders, thinkers and organizers in the fields of disarmament, conflict prevention, peace and security, human and civil rights, the protection of voting rights, and in redressing the undue special interest influence in politics and the judiciary.

We provide the groups and collaboratives we serve with shared access to public opinion research, in-depth news coverage and digital media analysis, and message development resources, specific to each of the above issues areas. We provide shared access to professional media and communications tools, reporter intel, and hands-on training in critical media and strategic communications skills to enhance their presentation to the media and to improve collaboration and coordination.

ReThink Media was founded by Lynn Fahselt and Peter Ferenbach. After over 15 years at the helm, they have decided to transition from their current roles. While a new leader will bring new perspectives to the organization, ReThink Media’s commitment to partners will remain consistent. ReThink will continue to strengthen its core capacity and create a sustainable infrastructure to take that learning to new levels and new issues.
