**This program is hosted by our partner, Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.**
A repeal of the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits charitable organizations, including religious institutions, from intervening in political campaigns, could have a damaging impact on the integrity of the sector and further infuse money into our political process.
Since President Trump’s statement over a year ago promising to “destroy” the Johnson Amendment, there have been several executive and legislative actions to try to repeal the law, and advocates have mobilized to defend it. Join FCCP to learn more about where the repeal stands now and what philanthropy can do to protect the Johnson Amendment.
- What the Johnson Amendment is and why it is important for a healthy democracy
- The implications of a repeal for money in politics
- How funders have been advocating to protect the Johnson Amendment and how philanthropy can be more involved
Disclaimer: As with all FCCP events, the subject matter is strictly limited to non-partisan discussion as outlined in the agenda and is intended for funders and staff of philanthropy serving organizations.
