Ours is a time of increased political action and civic engagement. Many arts organizations want to get involved, but believe their (c)3 status limits what they can do. A national survey of arts nonprofits found “a widespread misunderstanding … about the allowable scope of their participation in political affairs” –which prevents them – i.e. YOU -- from fully leveraging advocacy and citizen participation.
Knowledge is power, and understanding the ins and outs of nonprofit advocacy rules is key to supporting your organization to stepping in, speaking out, and facilitating change. This free afternoon session, jointly presented by California Lawyers for the Arts and the LA County Arts Commission, will dispel myths, clarify questions, and leave you ready to more fully engage in our current reality.
Liz Bluestein, Vice President and General Counsel, Public Counsel
