Reminder – Advocacy During an Election Year
Implied endorsements of candidates can jeopardize councils’ 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. All members of the House of Representatives are currently up for reelection. If your council is participating in an event with a public official that is currently running for reelection, confirm with their staff they are appearing in their official capacity as a public official, and that photos of Girl Scouts or council leadership will not be shared on candidates’ campaign social media accounts. When in doubt, hold off on engaging with candidates until after election Contact Nancy Wood, Nwood@gscnc.org if you need assistance.
