Join members of Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts, DC Advocates for the Arts, and International Arts and Artists on Wednesday, June 8th, from 6:30 – 8:00pm at the Hillyer Art Space, 9 Hillyer Court NW in Dupont Circle, for a panel discussion and member event ~ Legal Guidelines for Non-Profit Advocates (What Can I Say and Give Without Losing my Non-Profit Status?).
The discussion will be geared toward arts-related nonprofits, but other organizations will benefit from the expertise of the speakers and the dialogue with other community advocates. Speakers will focus on laws governing lobbying and advocating for non-profit organizations.
