We find ourselves in a moment of great political change. As visible, vocal members of our communities, GALA Choruses are uniquely positioned to be forces for justice, solidarity, and hope. But how can can we actively engage in advocacy, while remaining focused on our missions? How can we engage with the political realities of our times without putting our non-profit, 501(c)(3), status at risk?
Below are a list of resources that address some of these concerns. There are many additional items that could be added to this list. These and other resources can be found at the GALA Choruses Resource Center.
- “Advocacy Basics” from The Performing Arts Alliance
- “Political Campaign Activities – Risks to Tax-Exempt Status” from National Council of Nonprofits
- “Nonprofit Radio: Your Nonprofit in Politics” from Nonprofit Law Blog
If you are aware of any additional items that should be added as resource, please let us know! Send any additional resources to firstname.lastname@example.org.
