Lawyers Alliance: Lobbying and Civic Engagement Webinar, Mar. 14, 2017

Posted on February 27, 2017

Lawyers Alliance for New York is offering a timely webinar for nonprofits in conjunction with the National Network of Business Law Pro Bono Providers and Alliance for Justice

Lobbying and Civic Engagement:
Laws and Regulations in a Time of National Change
What Your Nonprofit Needs to Know

Date/Time:   Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST

HOW YOU AND YOUR NONPROFIT WILL BENEFIT:
More than ever, many nonprofits want to speak out about how federal government policies will affect their communities.  Others want to encourage voter participation in the 2018 midterm elections.  Even organizations with 501(c)(3) status can do this, but they need to comply with the tax code and other applicable laws.  This webinar will explain how nonprofits can engage in nonpartisan civic engagement and in issue advocacy consistent with their tax status.  It will also let participants know how to find information about whether they are subject to state and local lobbyist registration requirements.  Finally, it will identify steps that organizations can take to manage risks that may arise when an organization takes a position on a controversial issue.

Laura Abel, Senior Policy Counsel, Lawyers Alliance for New York
