How Nonprofits Can (And Can't) Engage in Political Advocacy

February 21, 2024
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

Nonprofits and religious organizations often engage in the political sphere—but there are sharp lines and gray areas for this type of engagement. Join us for a discussion of these rules, including a detailed description of the Johnson Amendment and its impact on nonprofits.

We’ll equip nonprofit leaders with helpful tips to advance policy advocacy efforts, and provide insightful guidance for religious entities to press for social change. In short, you will learn how to be a more effective advocate and champion your cause without drawing the attention of the IRS.
