About Our Work

We provide a variety of training and resources to help nonprofit staff and volunteers to advocate and lobby effectively and legally. Get answers to questions such as:

  • What are the legal limits on nonprofit lobbying?
  • What kind of reporting is required?
  • How can I effectively approach my legislator?
  • How do we develop an advocacy strategy?

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our online resource library provides many free advocacy resources, including excellent resources from MANP, Alliance for Justice, Charitable Lobbying in the Public Interest, the National Council of Nonprofits, Independent Sector, and the Maine Ethics Commission.
