CFSC Co-Hosts Nonprofit Advocacy 101

In February, Community Foundation Sonoma County co-hosted Nonprofit Advocacy 101, in collaboration with Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County, the Peter E Haas Jr. Family Fund, and the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation. Bolder Advocacy, a program of Alliance for Justice, led the event, which was designed to provide training for Sonoma County nonprofit leaders on the crucial role they play as advocates for their programs, teams, and communities.

The event was designed for nonprofit EDs/CEOs and Board Chairs based in Sonoma County. After a warm welcome from keynote speaker Henry A.J. Ramos, a senior fellow at the Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy at The New School, participants were led through the Nonprofit Advocacy 101 training. This training is designed to teach 501(c)(3)s how they can educate and advocate for their communities. The training was followed by a panel discussion with local nonprofit leaders Karym Sanchez, Lead Organizer of the North Bay Organizing Project and Cynthia King, CEO of Community Action Partnership Sonoma County.

The free event was at capacity and full of great discussions and information on everything from sharing power to conducting nonpartisan voter registration. Participants learned the ins and outs of advocating during an election year, how to safely support ballot measures, and how to safely engage in nonpartisan advocacy.

CFSC is honored to work with our co-hosts to bring educational events like these to our nonprofit community in Sonoma County. We look forward to future opportunities to come together, share information, and work towards a Sonoma County where we all can thrive.
