Social Media Rules for 501(c)(3) Organizations
(Alliance For Justice)

WHEN: Thursday, February 16
Time: 11am PT (Lasts one hour)
COST: $35

Can a 501(c)(3) lose its tax status over a careless tweet? What happens when a politician “likes” your organization’s Facebook page? Social media can help an organization shape public policy, but it comes with its own set of rules and regulations. Many nonprofits are hesitant about engaging in online advocacy, but knowing these rules can strengthen your work! Join Alliance for Justice for an interactive training that will clarify the rules for using social media, blogs, websites, and email as part of your advocacy toolkit. Trainers will give concrete examples and invite the audience to discuss hypothetical situations to develop a deeper understanding of the rules that apply to online advocacy.
