Communities and organizations thrive when they can count on the support of their local governments. Citizens are more engaged, and neighborhoods get the resources they need. How would you like to learn how to build or improve your relationship with the team down in your city hall?

This four-part webinar series highlights the basic components of establishing a relationship and working with your city government to promote immigrant integration. Participants will learn best practices for approaching officials, crafting a proposal for city government support, and establishing their agency as a trusted source for city officials. CLINIC affiliate staff who have partnered successfully with their local government will share lessons learned.

Each webinar will offer supplemental materials, including explanations of common terminology used when working with city government, talking points for convincing agency leadership to partner with city government, and examples of cities who have successfully built a bridge between nonprofit agencies and their local government. The trainings are complimentary, although each webinar can be taken individually.
