Have you ever wondered about how your organization can engage in government relations, advocacy, or policy work? Did you know that it can Magnify Your Impact?
We recently asked public policy experts about WHY nonprofits engaging in advocacy is important. They explained why and how we, as nonprofits, can magnify our impact by engaging in advocacy.
Check out the brief video, share it with others and Magnify Your Impact.
