ADVOCACY | Activating Your Networks to Get Out the Vote

ACA Staff
September 28, 2020

Nonprofits can (and should) support activities that encourage voters to register, participate in elections, and stay civically engaged.*

On October 15, join us for Artist Communities + Civic Engagement where we will explore strategies for activating your institution. In the meantime, here are resources and steps to get you moving:

  • Use these nonprofit-friendly social media posts and emails from DanceUSA's toolkit to engage your networks.

  • Find concrete steps you can take in the next four weeks—including mobilizing volunteers, spreading the word about early voting, and giving staff election day off—at Nonprofit VOTE.

Advocacy requires long-term relationship building and consistent messaging. Learn the basics in the League of American Orchestras’ Playing Your Part: Guide to Public Policy Advocacy.


*501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are strictly prohibited from supporting the election or defeat of any candidate for office, but they can engage in non-partisan voter engagement.
