Review for Alliance for Justice, Washington, DC, USA

I am called upon to advise my own organization and other non-profits on what what non-profits can and cannot about lobbying and political issues. Although I am a lawyer and have sixty lawyers on our staff, when a hard issue comes up I look to the Alliance for Justice for the best legal advice in this very complex area.

What is unique about this organization?
They are the nation's experts on the law of non-profit advocacy. Too often non-profits and foundations think they cannot do "lobbying". Yet advocacay with elected officials and with the public about legislative issues is often crucial to the mission of non-profits and the foundations that fund them. The Alliance guides non-profits through this area, so they can be effective while still within the bounds of the law.
