From direct lobbying to community education, nonprofit organizations participate in a variety of advocacy activities in order to further their missions. Join us on September 13 to learn how nonprofits can advocate for their missions and how you, as a young nonprofit professional, can play a key role.
This session will provide an overview of the tools you can use at your nonprofit to advocate for your issues, constituents, and mission. We will discuss the advocacy rules for nonprofits and answer your questions about how young nonprofit professionals can be involved. A panel of presenters will talk about their experiences effecting change at the legislature and the ballot box.
Participants will learn:
-Tactics nonprofit organizations and professionals can use to advance their organization’s mission through advocacy work
-Fundamental knowledge of rules governing nonprofits’ participation in elections and policymaking (including dos and don’ts concerning nonprofit employees)
-Examples of how nonprofits have taken action to effect policy change and increase civic participation
