The Building Blocks of Policy Work
Learn why and how philanthropy should be involved in public policy and advocacy.
You know public policy is important, but does it make sense for you? There are issues your organization supports, but how do you affect change? How do you talk with legislators, the media, and even your board?
We will answer these questions and more during this workshop on The Building Blocks of Policy Work.
