Regardless of awareness advocacy is a very important issue for you. Your advocacy is making your support or opposition to some policy public. Nonprofits are impacted by many policy areas, from tax code changes to laws and regulations that impact your mission. Nonprofits that work to clean our public spaces may have strong opinions on potential changes to State Park funding. Nonprofits dealing with education may have strong opinions on school choice. The combinations are endless. But do you know how to engage? And do you know the state and region laws that regulate the manner that nonprofits can lobby? Are you clear on the difference between engaging as an area expert versus a lobbyist? Members can check out the workshop material below, and everyone is welcome to browse our extensive set of resources. If you have a specific question regarding advocacy feel free to click Ask A Question and pose your question to our staff or request a workshop.
