Over the last 30 years, Alliance for Justice has worked with hundreds of nonprofits and foundations – helping them realize what is possible through advocacy and giving them the support they need to advocate for their communities.

Here is what a few of them have to say about the help they’ve received through our advocacy programs.

 

“I do not think I could have survived as an activist without the help that AFJ gave me.”

Jehmu Greene, former president, Rock the Vote & Women’s Media Center

“The Alliance for Justice is an unparalleled resource for the nonprofit community.”

Paul Sonn, Legal Co-Director, National Employment Law Project

“It would cost a lot for us to hire lawyers to advise us on how to avoid the pitfalls and problems that Alliance for Justice helps us recognize.”

Rob Moore, Environmental Advocates of New York

“Thanks to the guidance of the Alliance for Justice we have a robust nonprofit sector.”

Rep. Donna Edwards

“AFJ walked us through hosting a successful candidates’ forum. By e-mail and phone, they answered tricky legal questions and helped us think about how to be effective but not put ourselves at risk.”

Jenne Wood-Taylor, PACT Community Organizer

KDK-Harman Foundation

“I’ve known about AFJ for many, many years and have long admired your work.  Recently, AFJ helped us clarify some important lobbying rules with regard to international work.  Doing advocacy on global environmental issues is a core part of our mission, and AFJ’s clarification helped.  Thank you!”

Melissa Hippler, Director of Development
Center for International Environmental Law

“Alliance for Justice has already been an incredibly valuable resource for our campaign. AFJ conducted a training for our entire coalition, have met with groups individually to help them navigate their unique issues, provided us with great written materials and templates, and generally been the best thing ever. If we had to pay the campaign attorneys for the help AFJ has given us, it would have cost tens of thousands of dollars. They also made us feel empowered–that we can do this and that they will be there as partners to help.”

Natasha Minsker, Campaign Manager
SAFE CA Campaign

The Alliance for Justice is a terrific organization!  The staff is extremely knowledgeable and effective in helping non-profits with a wide range of advocacy issues.  The National Center for Youth Law needed training on the rules for lobbying.  A highly trained AFJ staff member came to our office and gave an informative and professional presentation that answered all our questions and has enabled us to do our job more effectively.   We are confident now that we are in complete compliance with all the rules.”

Hayden Lilien, Director of Finance and Administration
National Center for Youth Law

The AFJ training on lobbying and the 501h designation for nonprofits was extremely informative. Our Board of Directors now have a fuller understanding of the this designation and what it means for our organization. After the training, the Board was moved to vote on taking the 501h election for the organization.”
