Publication date: 
December 2016

Resources and tools to help nonprofits and foundations navigate complex advocacy rules and regulations.

Bolder Advocacy promotes active engagement in democratic processes and institutions by giving nonprofits and foundations the confidence to advocate effectively and by protecting their right to do so. Their goal is to demystify and decode advocacy by equipping organizations with knowledge and tools. They help organizations fully understand the rules and become assertive in their right to pursue their policy goals.

Bolder Advocacy is an initiative of the Alliance for Justice — a national association of more than 100 organizations that are united by a commitment to a fair, just, and free America where everyone has equal access to justice and can fully participate in our democracy.

Bolder Advocacy provides nonprofits and foundations with the resources and tools to help them navigate complex advocacy rules and regulations. BolderAdvocacy.org is a place where users can search our robust collection of how-to’s, fact sheets, and reports that help nonprofits stay up-to-date on advocacy and connect with a coach for one-on-one technical assistance and trainings. The site provides examples of how nonprofits have used advocacy to advance their causes, and promotes tools that help nonprofits measure and develop the ability to advocate and evaluate accomplishments.
