Bolder Advocacy promotes active engagement in the policy making process by giving nonprofits and foundations the confidence to speak out courageously and protecting their right to do so.
Bolder Advocacy provides nonprofits with the knowledge they need to become confident advocates.
Our staff attorneys conduct workshops and trainings around the country and provide one-on-one technical assistance. Our coaching emboldens individuals and organizations to make their voices heard but also informs them where the lines are drawn.
Bolder Advocacy delivers the resources and tools nonprofits and foundations need to navigate complex advocacy rules and regulations.
The Bolder Advocacy program website is a place where users can search our robust collection of how-to’s, fact sheets, and reports that help nonprofits stay up to date. The site provides examples of how nonprofits have used advocacy to advance their causes, and promotes tools that help nonprofits measure and develop their capacity and evaluate accomplishments.
Bolder Advocacy advances and protects the role of nonprofits and foundations in influencing public policy.
We use our expertise to ensure that the legal and political environment in which organizations operate is fair, balanced, and open to hearing them. By weighing in on legislation that both promotes and threatens free speech rights for nonprofits and foundations, we lay the groundwork for more nonprofit organizations to advocate effectively on behalf of their communities.
We also regularly speak out for the sector to demonstrate the importance of advocacy. We build a steady drumbeat of support for advocacy and encourage a dialogue within the nonprofit community and beyond about why it is so critical to influence public policy as an appropriate and vital activity tool to meet their goals.
