Advocacy Rules for Nonprofits

Kauffman Foundation Conference Center, Town Square

May 24, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

We are pleased to offer this training from the Alliance for Justice, the nation’s expert on nonprofit advocacy and lobbying. Abby Levine, J.D., will offer a presentation that answers the following questions:

  • What is the difference between advocacy and lobbying?
  • Why would nonprofit organizations want to get involved in public policy?
  • What is lobbying, and how much can our 501(c)(3) lobby?
  • Do you need to have a lobbyist in Jefferson City or Topeka, or are there other ways to stay informed on legislative issues?
  • How do we, as a nonprofit, partner on public policy issues?

We will also hear from some local organizations that are involved in public policy advocacy. A continental breakfast will be available at 8:30 a.m., with the program to begin at 9 a.m.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.
