Advocacy portal launched

By Todd Cohen

OMB Watch, a nonprofit research group in Washington, D.C., that supports nonprofit advocacy, has launched, an online resource for nonprofit advocacy.

The portal is aims to help groups already playing an advocacy role expand their work by highlighting what other groups are doing and providing reference and background material, says Ryan Turner, nonprofits’ policy and technology analyst for the group.

It also is designed to help groups not involved in advocacy work understand what they can do.

In addition to offering case studies and summaries of laws and rules governing lobbying and other advocacy work, OMB Watch has teamed up with Capitol Advantage, an Internet-directory and email-advocacy firm in Fairfax, Va., to create a tool to let visitors send messages to national and state elected officials and the news media.
