Robocalling Rules: Before you Pick Up that Phone, Hold that Call—What You Need to Know about Robocalls, Robotexts, and Autodialers
BOLDER ADVOCACY OFFERS A FREE NEW PUBLICATION TO HELP YOU NAVIGATE NEW TECHNOLOGIES, NEW RULES, AND NEW OPPORTUNITIES.
This is an election year and the advocacy stakes are higher than ever for many nonprofits. Groups of all kinds are exploring new ways to reach their members and supporters, and to engage in vitally important issue-based campaigns. In today’s world, this increasingly means taking advantage of new technologies and reaching people through smartphones and the ubiquitous devices that define modern life.
As a result, many nonprofits are now using automated communications methods to generate text messages and phone calls in the course of their campaigns. But the very newness of these approaches has raised questions about the rules, regulations, and laws that govern them. How can organizations remain in legal compliance – and more importantly, how can they achieve a level of comfort that enables them to take full advantage of these increasingly valuable communications techniques?
Alliance for Justice’s Bolder Advocacy program has just published a user-friendly guide to the laws and regulations governing autodialing, robocall, and robotext campaigns, called Robocalling Rules: Before you Pick Up that Phone, Hold that Call—What You Need to Know about Robocalls, Robotexts, and Autodialers.
As a special service during this election season, you can download a free copy of this important publication here.
This guidebook is just the latest in a series of resources and services offered to nonprofit organizations nationwide through Bolder Advocacy.
