  • Lobbying and Political Activity for Horse Rescues and Sanctuaries
    Wednesday, February 24, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST
    It is key to understand the difference between lobbying (attempting to influence legislation) and political activity (an attempt to influence a political campaign or election). Some lobbying is permitted for 501(c)(3) public charities, as long as those activities are tracked and reported. Political activity, on the other hand, is absolutely prohibited for 501(c)(3)s. Learn the rules and what you can do to positively affect change for horses.
    Presenters: Beverly Jones, SVP and CLO, ASPCA; Keith Dane, Vice President of Equine Protection, The Humane Society of the United States
