    The 2022 Nonprofit Advocacy Summit is Over -
    But Don't Miss Out on More Learning Opportunities

    Finally, a training designed specifically for nonprofit advocacy professionals. Keep reading to see what you missed.

    As a nonprofit advocacy expert, I was tired of the lack of advocacy training and learning opportunities for nonprofits. Corporations and large nonprofits have their pick of expensive conferences and workshops. 

    But we NEED nonprofits to be expertly engaged and trained to impact policy – now more than ever. 

    You are invited to join me – and a slate of other advocacy experts – at the Nonprofit Advocacy Summit. This two-day virtual LIVE summit will feature experts in all areas of nonprofit advocacy – from tech, to social media, to coalition building, to tracking and reporting.

    There will even be a few lawmaker appearances, during which you can ask policymakers directly what works and what doesn't. 

    This is a free, LIVE, virtual event – join from the privacy of your home office, in your comfy clothes. Stay for both days, or just a few sessions – whatever works for you. And because it’s LIVE, you’ll be able to ask questions of each expert. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies you can start using immediately.

    Experts will cover:


    Advocacy 101, including the difference between advocacy and politics

    Advocacy implications for funders, associations, and equity

    Leveraging tech and video in your advocacy campaigns

    Using storytelling and social media to amplify your efforts

    Centering community engagement and diversity in your advocacy campaigns

    Power-Mapping: what you have and what you need to win

    Coalition and Power Building Strategies

    The nuts and bolts of H Elections, tracking, and reporting

    Holding candidates accountable after the election

    Leveraging your C3 and C4 in your advocacy strategy

    Our democracy DEPENDS on nonprofits sharing how public policy is failing our communities — and how it can improve our lives.
