TNB Roundtable: Why and How Nonprofits Build Political Power
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about why and how nonprofit organizations build political power. Our featured guests will be Jordan Berg Powers of Mass Alliance and Lisette Le of Massachusetts Voter Table.
Many nonprofit organizations that have historically been devoted to direct services to individuals, families, and communities are now becoming aware that they can play a role to advocate and influence public policy. Some of them are extremely concerned that key decisions are actually being made when lawmakers are voted into office, and are looking to understand what they can and cannot do to voice and take action about these concerns. In this session, nonprofit professionals will learn about strategies to influence public policy and ways to engage members/constituents in electoral campaigns, while complying with 501c3 IRS statutes.
