Advocacy vs. Lobbying

Informing policymakers about the importance of afterschool, out-of-school time and summer learning is a major part of our work. Yet, we know that as non-profits we must be careful about what we say and what activities are appropriate. This webinar will teach you how to learn to differentiate between advocating and lobbying. Join Nikhil Pillai from Alliance for Justice as he reviews the criteria involved in making the case for an issue without running into legal trouble.
