Stand For Your Mission

Alliance for Justice’s Bolder Advocacy program is excited to participate in the Stand for Your Mission campaign. Created by BoardSource, in coordination with the Alliance for Justice, the Campion Foundation, the Forum of Regional Association of Grantmakers, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the National Council of Nonprofits, this campaign promotes board and trustee advocacy.

The Stand for Your Mission campaign is a challenge to all nonprofit decision-makers to stand up for the organizations they believe in by actively representing their organization’s mission and values, and creating public will for positive social change. It provides a framework in which board members and trustees of nonprofits and foundations can have constructive discussions about the importance—and ability—of their groups to advocate for long lasting change. Complete with guides on how to begin a conversation about advocacy and why groups should get involved, the website is a clearinghouse for useful information.
