How Your Nonprofit Organization Can – and Why It Should – Engage in Grassroots Advocacy

  • Thu, January 17, 2019
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (EST)
  • At your desk!


  • Available for members and nonmembers!

Registration is closed

Nonprofit organizations can – and should – keep your membership informed and engaged in policy issues ranging from education, to employment, to health care, to Medicaid and more. Organizational leaders should also build relationships with elected officials and serve as the voice of the local Down syndrome community to promote policy change. How can this be done without jeopardizing your organization’s 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status? And how can you engage your members in grassroots advocacy? 

In this webinar (co-sponsored by DSAIA and NDSC), Heather Sachs and Lauren Camp from the National Down Syndrome Congress Policy & Advocacy Team will answer these questions. They will also discuss NDSC’s National Down Syndrome Advocacy Coalition (NDAC) and other resources you can use to get your group connected and educate members about policy issues. You don't need to be a policy expert- let us do the research and analysis for you- take advantage of our resources! 

Want to view the webinar but can't make it during the live presentation? Be sure and register to receive a link to view the recording for up to 14 days. (Most webinars are placed in STACKS - the DSAIA Member Resource Library - within 6 months.)

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
