Nonprofit Policy Caucus

Advocacy and an Engaged Nonprofit Sector

The nonprofit sector is amplifying its voice at the federal and state levels.

Whether by responding to tax reform, health care, labor proposals, the federal budget, or lobbying at the NH State House, nonprofits are engaging—and policy makers are more aware of the integral role the nonprofit sector plays in communities in New Hampshire and throughout the country.

As we begin the new legislative year, let's come together with nonprofit leaders from around the state to hear from David Thompson, the National Council of Nonprofits' Vice President of Public Policy, and a panel of NH policy experts to reflect upon what we've learned this year, and discuss how we build on and sustain this developing voice in the world of advocacy.

Join us on January 12th. Your voice is needed!
