OVERVIEW & REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Ever feel like those of us who work in nonprofits are small potatoes compared to business and government leaders? The truth is, we’re bigger and badder than you might think.
 
This briefing will explore the economic and social importance of our workforce and our work, and how we can help policymakers understand and support nonprofit workers. First we’ll get the national overview from the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Civil Society Studies, and then we’ll dig into state and local perspectives in major hubs of nonprofit work—that have also been pandemic hotspots.
 
This event has been organized by Fund the People, the national campaign to maximize investment in the nonprofit workforce. Event partners include Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Civil Society Studies and Young Nonprofit Professionals Network.
 
Registration is free and limited to 100 people. All “live” participants will be able to offer questions before and during the session, and will receive a recording. Please limit registration to one person per organization if possible, to enable as many organizations to participate.
