Being A Player: Nonprofit Rules for Lobbying and Advocacy

Nonprofit organizations are looking to get involved in public policy as a way to influence programs and resources that aid poor and vulnerable residents in our communities. Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations can and should engage in advocacy around their issues. It’s simply a matter of understanding what your organization can and cannot do. On Tuesday, November 9, the Alliance for Justice will present an interactive workshop from 1-3:30 p.m. on the federal rules that govern nonprofit lobbying and advocacy. Register.
