- Nonpartisan Advocacy: How 501(c)(3)s Can Educate and Advocate for IssuesLink visible for attendees
This webinar may be of interest to our members...
American Atheists, in partnership with the American Humanist Association, would like to present this vital information during this legislative session and election cycle.
Though public charities must remain nonpartisan, they have a critical role to play in advocacy activities throughout the year and particularly during the election cycle! Not only can public charities engage in issue advocacy, but they can also conduct robust voter and candidate education campaigns and mobilize the public to get out the vote. After this session, you will have a better understanding of how to safely engage in nonpartisan advocacy activities as a nonprofit organization – both on and off election years.
Participants will learn:
- How federal tax law permits lobbying for charities and how lobbying is defined;
- How to maximize your non-lobbying advocacy;
- How you can continue to advocate for your issues during election years;
- How you can educate the public through candidate forums and questionnaires;
- How you can respond to candidate statements objectively;
- How you can conduct nonpartisan voter registration and ensure get-out-the-vote efforts are conducted legally;
- How you can safely support or oppose ballot measures without being partisan
