Live Webinar | Primary Season: How Super Tuesday and Critical State Primaries Elevate Policy Choices

Primaries, caucuses, and debates for the 2020 election cycle are fully underway, with multiple candidates voicing a spectrum of policy positions. As voters begin to coalesce around issues and candidates, how might the primaries serve as pressure tests for these issues as well as educational and advocacy opportunities for the nonprofit sector? In our third workshop of this Election 2020 special series, foremost nonprofit policy experts will be joined by leading nonprofit policy practitioners to discuss how nonprofits can drive conversations, take advantage of an engaged public, and elevate long standing and emerging issues that affect the common good.
