Villanova University

How should nonprofits effectively advocate for positive policy impact? What are effective policy advocacy strategies being used by and for Philadelphia nonprofits? Villanova University and PANO are excited to host “Nonprofits & Policy Makers II: Voices from the Field”.

Join us for a panel discussion and accompanying workshop to hear perspectives from both nonprofits and government professionals on how to navigate the current policy environment and advocate successfully for your mission. Whether or not you attended “Nonprofits & Policy Makers I: Courageous Conversations in Advocacy”, we hope you’ll join us for another fabulous opportunity to connect with, learn with, learn from, and (most importantly) eat with your local peers!
