On Thursday, June 30, Isaiah Castilla of Bolder Advocacy, an initiative of the Alliance for Justice to promote active engagement in democratic processes and institutions by giving nonprofits and foundations the confidence to advocate effectively, will be in town for a training with nonprofits on federal and state advocacy rules. (Learn more about that session.) We’re pleased to invite our funder colleagues to a private session with Isaiah that afternoon. Not sure how to make the case for funding advocacy? Uncertain whether you can fund grantees that lobby? Wondering whether your public or private foundation can speak out on a particular issue? This training, for both public and private foundations, answers these questions and more! Please RSVP by June 27. REGISTER HERE
