Update on Books for Prison Libraries
EveryLibrary and our colleagues at the LGBT Technology Partnership were proud to present a workshop at South by Southwest 2017 in Austin on "Super PAC Hacks for Social Good".
Political Action Committees (PACs) are often described as 'dark money' or representing nefarious special interests. But setting up a PAC to work for social impact can advance a policy agenda and augment the work of existing charities, non-profits, and c3 orgs. Learn how two 501c4 "super PAC" organizations, EveryLibrary and the LGBT Technology Partnership, evaluated their policy and advocacy landscapes to challenge existing models of issue-advocacy and re-imagine the policy agenda. Both organizations’ founders will share practical insights on the financial and regulatory aspects of leading a c4 start-up creating new organizations in an established ecosystem.
EveryLibrary and LGBT Technology Partnership are both "social welfare" organizations set up as 501(c)4 rather than 501(c)3 charities or non-profits. The workshop slides (as presented at SXSW17) by John Chrastka and Chris Wood take you through how they setup their respective organizations to maximize both efficiencies and impacts.
