Laws on the Ballot: Ballot Measure Advocacy for Nonprofits
Thursday July 25th, 2:00-3:00pm Eastern
Although nonprofits cannot support or oppose candidates, they can take a stand on ballot measures. Ballot measure advocacy is an effective way to engage and advocate for your community and its interests. Join us for details on how ballot measures–as well as amendments and referendums–provide yet another nonpartisan opportunity to connect with your audience, collaborate with partners, and build relationships–all while advancing your mission and goals.
