Advocacy is more important than ever to build power and protect our communities. Wondering if your 501(c)(3) can bring unwanted controversy? Or how to speak out on what decision-makers are doing? If so, this workshop is for you! Social media can help an organization shape public policy, but it comes with its own set of rules and regulations. Join Alliance for Justice for an interactive training that will clarify the rules for using social media, blogs, and email as part of your advocacy toolkit. AFJ’s attorney-trainer will share concrete examples and invite you to discuss hypothetical situations to develop a deeper understanding of the rules that apply to online advocacy.
For 501(c)(3) and/or 501(c)(4) staffers, volunteers, and board members interested in engaging in advocacy. All experience levels are welcome and all will leave with a better understanding of the rules.
