About This Event
Given the myriad choices facing voters, how can nonprofit leaders ensure that the people we serve participate and that their interests are represented? Issues including capital punishment, marriage equality, dialysis care, zero-emission vehicles, online sports betting, and funding for arts & music education will all be on the ballot. And thanks to redistricting, many new elected representatives will be in new roles. You and your team play an important role in the coming weeks helping to combat voter suppression efforts, sharing unbiased resources that can help voters decide, and forming relationships with officials as content experts in the months and years ahead.
Thank you to JPMorgan Chase for sponsoring CNM’s 2022-2023 Lunch & Learn Series.
