Description

Training Overview

The Alliance for Justice’s Bolder Advocacy initiative has collaborated with thousands of nonprofit organizations, working with their leaders, staff, and volunteers to understand the legal issues involved in public policy work.

The goals of this training are to learn:

  • What lobbying is for nonprofit organizations,
  • How to find flexible funding for advocacy,
  • What advocacy looks like in Pennsylvania, with a focus on health care and human services,
  • How your organization can be involved in election-related activities, and
  • How to maximize coalitions in advocacy work

In addition, technical assistance will be available from 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm. A sign-up sheet will be available for 20-minute time slots on the day of the training, so come with your questions and ideas for expert advice!
