we go beyond press releases.



Founded in 2006, MEPR Agency is a people-centered boutique public relations and community engagement firm based in Nashville, TN. We work with businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies whose core values push their businesses and communication to be inclusive of all communities and their voices. They partner with us to discover and deliver the most strategic ways to connect with their audience - many times outside of traditional media - and go beyond meetings and press releases to develop actionable wins that include the entire community. 

With a specific focus on intercultural communications, our diverse team of solutionists are the bridge that connect multicultural audiences - regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, or denomination - with access to information, in a culturally sensitive format, that educates and influences change. Our team uses local and global cultural insights as well as "feet to the street" campaigns to inform our work.

Our results will vary based on the campaign but we are sure to be innovative, build community trust, lead impactful conversation, develop actionable plans that deliver, and influence change. 

we disrupt the status quo.



We do not believe in business as usual. You'll never hear us say, "this is the way we've always done it." As a matter of fact, over time, if that's the story you're telling, it will soon change. 

Building relationships, developing trust, changing behavior, or deepening your brand awareness goes beyond writing a press release, conducting a meeting, or sending a tweet. Instead, {our definition of} public relations in its simplest, yet truest form is the ability to connect an organization's overall strategic business goals with an audience by developing communication programs that fit the audience's needs.  

Our commitment is to make our campaigns accessible to a diverse cross section of people, regardless of their preferred forms of communication. Simply, we believe our responsibility is to listen more than we talk, have a neighborhood discussion rather than send a mass email blast, or develop a blog, video, or podcast series that let's others tell your good news versus pitching a story to traditional media.

We understand that we are doing something totally different. If that makes us weird, we're ok with that. Our way of doing things makes entrepreneurial, disruptive, and innovative communicators that ensures our world and our industry are stronger. 

Our way has proven results that shift a culture, change behavior, and commits us to the person, not the platform, to develop trust and a deeper impact. We can say that we truly relate to the public.
