The Independent Sector, National Council of Nonprofits, Nonprofit VOTE and United Way Worldwide are sponsoring a national campaign called Nonprofit Votes Count to encourage nonprofit employees and volunteers to register and vote, and to build awareness among the charitable community about how many engaged voters are in our coalitions.
Join us for a free digital learning event on Thursday, June 18 at 2:00 p.m. EDT to learn how to mobilize our constituents, communicate our numbers and influence to candidates and public officials, and harness the power of the nonprofit vote!
Free Digital Event / June 18, 2015 / 2:00-3:15 p.m. EDT
When nonprofits use our voting power, we advance our causes, make our voices heard and change the world for the better. The nation’s 1.4 million nonprofits employ 13.7 million workers and 62.6 million volunteers. It is time we stand up and be counted as a powerful force in public affairs!
