California Advocacy Workshop in Los Angeles

  • Holman United Methodist Church 3320 West Adams Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90018 United States (map)

Attend a workshop on legislative advocacy at the state level hosted by CalNonprofits and Next Gen Policy with special guest State Senator Holly Mitchell!

From Eventbrite:

“And, we couldn't be more thrilled that State Senator Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) will be joining us! Senator Mitchell comes from serving as the executive director of the nonprofit Crystal Stairs, and she is a strong leader in the legislature and a hero to many communities.

CalNonprofits is a statewide policy alliance advocating for a favorable economic, regulatory and funding environment for nonprofits. NextGen Policy is a national nonprofit working for a "cleaner and stronger America".

Sometimes we nonprofits don’t advocate because we’re confused about the rules about nonprofit advocacy, or perhaps more frequently because we simply have too many things to do. This workshop will focus on what nonprofits can do with very limited time and resources.

Topics:

  • The do's and don'ts of nonprofit advocacy

  • The unexpected reasons nonprofits should be advocates

  • A range of advocacy approaches and tools

  • Update on pending California legislation affecting nonprofits

  • Discussion

There is no cost to attend this training, but space is limited and registration is required to participate. For more information, please contact Stacey Smith at stacey.smith@nextgenamerica.org or CalNonprofits Policy Director Nancy Berlin at nancyb@calnonprofits.org.”
