Work with Congress: Tips, Tactics, and Civil Discourse
Weekly marches and protests, boisterous town halls, hyper-partisan political divide and unpredictability at the federal level are defining features to the start of 2017. It is more important than ever for nonprofits to be strong advocates for their missions and issue based work in a thoughtful and strategic way that invites enduring dialogue and sustainable relationships that transcend ideological divides. Join this session to learn from former congressional staffers how Minnesota nonprofits can engage Minnesota’s Congressional delegation (including tips and tactics for working with the district and D.C. office) and a discussion on how we can help bridge the divide through civil discourse.
