It can be daunting to engage in public policy. After all, each of us is just one person. Can we really have any impact on the world of policy? It seems like the odds are against us, but nonprofits beat the odds every day—from the reach of our impact to the core of our missions. Nonprofits frequently tackle a similar question: “can we really have any impact on the world around us?” When anyone looks at the good that nonprofits do in the community, it’s not hard to imagine that nonprofits can also positively impact policy. The UNA has long been an active advocate on behalf of nonprofits in the state of Utah. Our Public Policy Statement outlines why we get involved and what impact we hope to have. But the reasons why we get involved are inconsequential. The important question is why you should get involved!
