Preparing for Advocacy Work

When advocacy is paired with providing service, nonprofits can make a bigger difference in their communities.  Good advocacy work is built upon relationships.  Understanding the unique features of the New Mexico state legislature will help you determine an advocacy approach and enable you to plan ahead and begin building those key relationships.
