Nonprofits in the arts, human services, and environmental sectors are being threatened with massive reductions in funding from the federal, state, and local governments. Without forceful advocacy on behalf of these service providers, significant damage could be done to communities across Philadelphia.
During this panel discussion, we'll hear from leaders of local alliances dedicated to protecting and advancing the causes of nonprofits in the arts, human services, and environment in City Council and the state legislature. From their experiences, we'll learn about the best strategies for educating elected officials about the real life consequences of their budget cuts, and the economic benefits of increasing funding in these areas.
