A Nonprofit Conversation with State Legislators

A bipartisan panel of state legislators will discuss state policy priorities in 2021 and give a preview of the process for developing the state budget. The panel will also share tips on effective ways for nonprofits to advocate for their missions and insights on opportunities for nonprofits to engage with elected officials during the pandemic. We will have a moderated Q&A session to allow participants a chance to get input from the legislative panelists.
