Take a Stance! Nonprofit Civic Engagement & The Ballot Box
Join us for an afternoon of dialogue and action, as Geoff Green, CEO of SBCC Foundation and Board Member of the California Association of Nonprofits, sets the stage of the current social and political climate and how nonprofits can be involved. This introduction is followed by an informational presentation on the ins and outs of what nonprofits can and can’t do when engaging in political work by Nona Randois, CA Director for the Alliance for Justice Bolder Advocacy Project. For the second half of the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to select a break-out discussion that gives them a deeper dive into the following subjects:

“Endorsement Mechanics: Internal Policies & Processes” - using the FUND’s endorsement process as an example, discuss how your organization might navigate taking a stance this November--and beyond! With Stanley Tzankov, FUND’s Capacity Building Manager.
“Consider the Landscape: Anticipate & Address Your Constituency’s Needs” - discuss possible considerations before, during, and after you take a stance in an election or legislation. Assessing the risks and benefits and balancing the needs of allied organizations, donors, and other key stakeholders can be challenging but ultimately an important part of advancing your mission. With Geoff Green.
“Bolder Advocacy: Q&A on the Do’s and Don’ts for Elections, Advocacy & Lobbying for Nonprofits” - empower yourself with information on how to safely and boldly engage in the political sphere. With Nona Randois.
