Next week, April 26 – 30, is AFP Lobby Week. It’s the time when AFP Global and AFP chapters around the country make concerted efforts to inform and educate our lawmakers on the importance of the nonprofit sector. And, of course, part of our efforts are focused on supporting legislation that benefits nonprofits and, by extension, our varied constituencies. Given that we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Lobby Week will be held virtually. As of this writing, the AFP NYC chapter has at least five Zoom calls scheduled with our New York Representatives and Senators.
