Your success INSIDE the Capitol depends on your power OUTSIDE the Capitol. And one of the greatest assets of nonprofits is working in coalition. Yet finding the right partners and working in a coalition is fraught with challenges. During this interactive and fun session, you’ll learn best practices in advocacy to advance your organization’s goals, how to identify and engage key stakeholders, and how to ensure your organization is not left out of policy-making conversations. By the end of this session, you’ll have the confidence to build your organization’s power by engaging your team, donors, members, coalition partners, and community in advocacy, as well as the framework for creating a strategic roadmap that leads to long-term advocacy success. Each attendee will receive a campaign planning template.
