Submitted by Larry Ottinger, President of the Center for Lobbying in the Public Interest, the letter recommends increased public advocacy by nonprofits and suggests that funders, board members, and government officials should make advocacy a normal part of what nonprofits do. Mr Ottinger notes, "If you're not at the policy table, you're on the table." For the blog about the original article, go here.
