WORKSHOP: Advocate Bolder and Wiser Than Ever Before on Oct. 31

Posted Oct 04, 2017 12:42 PM
Nonprofits have a responsibility to stand up for changes that benefit the community interests they serve. Imagine how different our state would look if every nonprofit engaged in advocacy to advance public understanding of their issue and to galvanize action by city, county, state, and federal legislators!

On Oct. 31, 2017, in partnership with Win/Win Network, an organization that mobilizes like-minded individuals and nonprofits to create social change, we are providing a two-part workshop with the national experts at Alliance for Justice on what your advocacy rights are as nonprofit organizations. Think you can't do advocacy because you're a nonprofit? Think again!

This is made possible thanks to support from the Campion Advocacy Fund.

You can register for only the morning or only the afternoon, or both - depending on what your organization plans to do in terms of advocacy and forming partnerships.
