We have to do better.
Foundations and advocates can no longer rely on the same old approaches to be effective when it comes to policy change. Progress is too vulnerable to not step up our game. Now more than ever, philanthropy needs to take full advantage of every advocacy strategy and approach available to it when advancing and sustaining policy goals.
The Atlas Learning Project provides a suite of resources to help funders and advocates how to boldly achieve and defend policy change. They cover engaging with and supporting 501(c)(4) organizations, using legal advocacy and strategic litigation, building advocacy capacity while also funding for policy results, supporting collaborative multi-party campaigns, and effectively moving from policy change to implementation.
