Alliance for Justice is Coming to Maine
We are pleased to be working with the Maine Philanthropy Center to bring the Alliance for Justice to Maine for a half-day training on nonprofit lobbying rules and regulations.
Creating Change: Worry-Free Advocacy for Nonprofits
As our nation and local communities tackle crisis after crisis, the usual strategies are simply not enough. There is a growing interest among nonprofit organizations to expand their advocacy efforts and for grantmakers to learn how to fund this work.
The Alliance for Justice (AFJ), the leading advocacy resource for nonprofits and foundations, is coming to Maine to conduct this half day workshop for nonprofit decision makers – staff and board.
Whether you have years of experience or are just beginning to engage in advocacy, AFJ attorney-trainers can provide the knowledge and tools you need to advance your organization’s mission, help you shape public policy, and answer your questions:
What are the various ways that I can influence policy as a nonprofit?
How can I position our advocacy work to increase our chances of success when submitting a request to a funder?
How can I capture the outcomes of our advocacy work and convey it to funders?
What are the differences between lobbying and advocacy?
How much can a 501(c)(3) lobby and how can we easily track our work?
How do these rules apply to ballot measures?
