Office of Public Affairs
The mission of the Office of Public Affairs is to help every other SEC division and office accomplish its missions — to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. The office administers internal and external Commission communications programs and coordinates relations with the media, the general public, Commission staff, and foreign visitors.
The staff is responsible for ensuring effective, proactive two-way communication with key internal and external clients. Coordinated communication provides greater quality control and more consistent information to investors and the general public about the activities of the SEC.
If you are a member of the news media, contact the Office of the Public Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 551-4120.
Investors should contact the SEC's Office of Investor Education and Advocacy at (800) 732-0330, or submit a question or comment to the SEC.
