We photographed the California Association of Nonprofits luncheon to celebrate nonprofits throughout California. All legislators were invited to select a nonprofit from their district and honor them for their work. Out of 120 legislators, 71 participated in this day. The keynote speaker was Mayor-Elect Darrell Steinberg who received a standing ovation!
At CalNonprofits they:
- Speak with the voice of California nonprofits to the legislature, government agencies, philanthropy, and the public.
- Work with legislators and nonprofit coalitions to develop legislation that will allow nonprofits to bring our full power to serving our communities, and remove the obstacles to efficient contracting and high-impact work.
- Bring nonprofits together to discuss and debate issues, to think through the implications of government and philanthropic actions, and to build networks that support our organizations and the communities we serve.
And much more! Think of it like a chamber of commerce for Non-profits.
