AFP July Panel:

Advocacy for Nonprofits: Yes, You Can!

Yes, nonprofit organizations can and should play a vital role in the development and implementation of public policy. We witness and respond to the impact of policies on the people and causes we serve and we have deep knowledge of the critical issues our communities face. Effective advocacy builds your capacity to achieve the greatest good for your stakeholders and your communities by raising awareness of your mission, mobilizing your supporters, and increasing your relevance in the region.

Come learn about how nonprofits can do advocacy within the limits of the law (we can do a lot!) and how to leverage its benefits to advance your mission.
