The presentation will have a clear focus on Ontario specifically and conclude with a brief setup of the subsequent session.
You will receive a link for a survey in the confirmation email. Please fill this out before the April 26th webinar.

Session 2: Finding Your Lane: Nonprofit Election Advocacy Strategies
Led by Candice Zhang of the ONN
April 28 from 3:00-4:30 PM EST
This election is a critical moment in time. We are emerging from a two-year global pandemic, facing historic levels of costs of living, and potentially heading into an economic recession. The pandemic has revealed how deeply inequities are entrenched into our current economic and social systems. As nonprofits, we need to engage in advocacy this election to make sure the next government has a vision and a plan to create an equitable post-pandemic Ontario.
Candice will outline low-energy and resource limited advocacy strategies your nonprofit can engage in to make our voices heard. She will also discuss several examples of nonprofits who have successfully used these advocacy methods.
