April 19: Community Food Security Coalition Webinar

As you all know, nonprofit organizations can — and should! — speak out for food and farm policy reform. But it’s crucial to understand how to do this within the federal law. In an ongoing effort to support and encourage grassroots advocacy, CFSC is pleased to partner with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and Alliance for Justice to offer this webinar to our members this month.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Types of advocacy (lobbying vs. grassroots vs. electoral)
  • What is — and isn’t — considered advocacy for reporting purposes
  • How to track and measure your advocacy for federal reporting
  • The 501(h) election and when and how to use it
  • A beginners’ case study – how can we get started in advocacy?
This free 90-minute webinar is intended for organizations that are current members of either the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition or the Community Food Security Coalition. If you have a key local partner who you’d like to invite, that’s okay too. We have partnered with Alliance for Justice, the leading national expert on the legal framework for nonprofit advocacy efforts, to ensure you’re getting reputable, accurate information. The training will be led by an AFJ legal counsel with support from NSAC and CFSC staff.

Can’t make this date and time? We’re recording it as well and will make it available on request to members.
