Originally held February 28, 9am-11am, the 'What is Advocacy? Learning Session and Panel' hosted over 50 nonprofit professionals for a lively and informative learning session.
The original event registration page has now been converted to an open and free curated advocacy resource to our nonprofit community. We hope you will find it helpful and wish you well on your advocacy journey!

Original Event Description:
Advocacy and philanthropy are at the heart of democracy and systemic change.
We believe that funders, philanthropists, nonprofits and government agencies do their best work when they do it together. The Community Foundation is proud to offer a year of convening and learning about advocacy to further support the great work already being done in RVA.
