Nonprofit Advocacy Day – April 10 @ 10am

We are pleased to announce registration is now open for State-wide Nonprofit Advocacy Day — Wednesday, April 10! The event will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Legislative Office Building located at 300 Capitol Avenue, Hartford.
** Click here to register **
WHY IS ADVOCACY DAY IMPORTANT?

If the legislature chooses not to support the revenue and savings proposed in the Governor’s budget, funding for essential services provided by community nonprofits will once again bear the burden of significant budget cuts. Further cuts to community nonprofits would likely lead to loss of services, wage freezes, program closures and even lay-offs.

We need you to bring families, advocates, staff, board members volunteers, funders, and others to tell policymakers to protect essential community services. Click here to register.

PRIOR TO ADVOCACY DAY, WE ASK YOU TO:
1. Email your legislators to let them know you are coming to the LOB:

2. Share this information within your network and on social media. Legislators need to hear from as many people as possible.

3.Come to Advocacy Day on April 10! Rally your network and join us at the LOB at 10:00 a.m. (remember to leave time to park and go through security.) Alliance staff will be on site to provide leave behind forms and materials, and can help you in identifying and locating your legislators.

It is critical that community nonprofits show up and tell legislators to protect essential community services. We hope you can join us on Wednesday, April 10!
