Worry-Free Lobbying & Advocacy
Alliance for Justice
May 25 in Santa Maria & May 26 in Santa Barbara
Join us for a legal workshop to learn how your nonprofit can bring the concerns of your community to policy makers and elected officials. Immigration, workers’ rights, access to healthcare, the state budget – these are just a few of the critical issues elected officials are debating. In this workshop, relevant laws will be explained to help your 501(c)(3) organization advocate without worry:
- How to calculate your 501(c)(3)’s lobbying limits and know what is and isn’t lobbying
- How to create a recordkeeping system for tracking 501(c)(3) lobbying expenditures
- How (c)(3)s and (c)(4)s can work together to maximize the impact of advocacy
- How to educate your community about candidates and encourage voting while remaining nonpartisan
