Nonprofit Advocacy Workshops

Nonprofit Advocacy Workshop LogoCalNonprofits is pleased to co-sponsor, along with NextGen Policy, a series of workshops on legislative advocacy at the state level. The workshops will focus on what nonprofits can and should do to represent and support their communities with limited time and resources.

Workshop topics include:

  • Unexpected reasons nonprofits should be advocates
  • Do's and don'ts of nonprofit advocacy and lobbying (yes you can!)
  • Advocacy approaches and tools
  • Questions and discussion

Next workshop: August 8 in San Bernardino!

We are pleased to also partner with Inland Empire Community Collaborative for the San Bernardino workshop, which will be held at First 5 (735 E. Carnegie Drive, Suite 150 San Bernardino, CA 92408) from 8:30am to 11am. Click here to register!

Our second workshop, this time in Stockton, featured Mayor Michael Tubbs and San Joaquin County Supervisor Katherine Miller. We were thrilled to have more than 40 nonprofit folks from across the region join us to learn and be inspired to advocate for their communities. Click here to see more photos from the day.
