The Interview

The 18th Annual Filmed by Bike is happening virtually this year September 10-13. I’ve wanted to check this out for years but could never coordinate my Portland travels or check out any of the roads shows. But this year, I’m in. Check it out at filmedbybike.org.

On this episode of the pod, I’m excited to chat with Filmed by Bike’s founder Ayleen Crotty. If you’re a bike Portlander, you’ve consumed some of the stuff she’s been in on the ground floor of. Midnight Mystery Ride, Pedalpalooza, Shift to Bikes, the KBOO Bike Radio Show? Yeah Ayleen’s legit.
 
We chat all about the film festival, including the bike adventurey entry this year plus more about the bike industry, diversity and more.

The GAP 4×44 Loop

It seems hard to believe I hadn’t bike toured on anything except the C&O in six months. SIX months! I love me some C&O, but if you’re like me variety helps keep me sane. So in August 2020, still in the midst of a global pandemic that was sticking around the US longer than any of us wanted, I figured out a safe and responsible way to roll on a different trail…. the Great Allegheny Passage. And due to some lucky happenstance, I could do a loop where each day was a convenient and Syracuse University numerology-friendly 44 milles (#GoOrange).

Check out Day 1.
Check out Day 2.

Check out Day 3.

Day 4 of the 4×44 GAP Loop came too quickly, but featured the ultimate payback for a day and a half of climbing… the giant downhill to the finish line.

Holding Elected Officials Accountable

501(c)(3)s can’t support or oppose candidates, but that doesn’t mean they can’t hold elected officials accountable for their policy decisions. Tim, Leslie and Quyen break down an interaction in Minneapolis following the police killing of George Floyd to talk about the ways individuals and nonprofits can engage elected officials. 

 

Our attorneys for this episode

 

Shownotes

  • 501(c)(3)s cannot support or oppose candidates for public office – see ROTG episode 1. But they can hold elected officials accountable for their policy actions or inactions.
  • Our example comes from a public discussion between Minneapolis activist Kandace Montgomery and Mayor Jacob Frey.
  • Individuals have more ability to draw connections to future elections than 501(c)(3)s
  • Non 501(c)(3) organizations aren’t as restricted in connecting to elections, but may need to follow relevant election laws
  • Strategies
    • “Bird dog” elected officials by showing up at their offices, town halls, or events to respond to their positions and to make the public aware of stances
    • Representatives of organizations may also ask questions of officials at public events or when they are in public places and then publicize the official’s answer. 
    • Stage public demonstrations, rallies, or marches to highlight support for or opposition to a policy or action by an elected official.
    • Call for town hall meetings 
    • Hold your own town hall meeting 
    • Call for oversight hearings. 
    • Use social media. 
    • Creatively highlight the impact of a policy

Transition Team Advocacy

The 2020 election is right around the corner. Your nonprofit may have mastered how to talk to candidates – but the rules change as successful candidates make the transition to elected officials. Join us for our next Live with Bolder Advocacy: How Nonprofits Can Assist in Transition Advocacy.

Senior Counsel Tim Mooney answers all your questions in how nonprofits can take advantage of this period of transition to educate a new administration and staff on the issues your organization cares about.

The Pedalshift Project 216: GAP 4×44 Loop – Day 3

Day 3 was sneakily the toughest of the 4×44 GAP Loop. Sure the hill wasn’t as steep as day 1, but this one was the full 44 miles long. Would the heat get the best of me?

Rules of the Game: The Bolder Advocacy Podcast

Rules of the Game 01: “Can We Say That?”: Election-Year Advocacy Rule for 501(c)(3)s

This is my new podcast for Alliance for Justice on nonprofit advocacy laws. Please note that AFJ is a 501(c)(3) organization and my personal opinions expressed on tim-mooney.com and other social media platforms are not the opinions of AFJ.

—-

Can 501(c)(3)s advocate to advance their mission while remaining nonpartisan during an election year? Tim, Leslie and Quyen explain the factors that the IRS looks at, and use a recent example to show how small changes in the content or context of a communication can change things.

Our attorneys for this episode

Tim Mooney

Leslie Barnes

Quyen Tu

Shownotes

  • The one rule 501(c)(3)s need to know during election year — 501(c)(3)s cannot support or oppose candidates for public office.
  • An election year is a great opportunity to elevate the issues your nonprofit works on every day. There are so many ways nonprofits can engage with voters, candidates and elected officials.
  •  Think of your advocacy like a road – there’s plenty of room to maneuver but this rule sets up guardrails you can’t cross.
  •  But the guardrails define the legal advocacy that can happen on the metaphorical road, so we start there. 501(c)(3)s cannot support or oppose candidates for public office, which means their activities must be nonpartisan.
  •  To determine whether or not a 501(c)(3) is nonpartisan, the IRS looks at all of the facts and circumstances. This is a subjective, risk analysis that takes into accounts everything the organization is saying and the context in which it’s saying that.
  • Six things the IRS looks at in the facts & circumstances analysis:
  1. Track record of advocacy
  2. Timing relative to election
  3. Electoral or non-electoral factor driving the activity/communication
  4. References to candidate/election or comparing candidate positions.
  5. Is your message targeting for electoral or non-electoral reasons
  6. Wedge issues
  • Context matters, but intent does not. This is an exercise in risk analysis, so we use a stop light analogy – red light is risky, green light low or no risk, and yellow light somewhere in between.

Example

Source: Earthjustice tweet of July 2, 2020.

  • Our analysis: this was low-to-no risk tweet. Let’s go through a facts & circumstances analysis to understand why.
    1. Earthjustice’s track record of advocacy
    2. Mentioning a candidate, but out of context of the election
    3. Timing of the communication is far away enough from the election
    4. Communication based on non-election trigger (ongoing litigation)
  • How do changes in timing and language affect the analysis?
    • The same communication in late October may be higher risk unless the timing were linked to something independent of the election (such as a court opinion right then)
    • But replace the reference to the Trump administration with the named defendant Army Corps of Engineers and the risk lowers again.
    • Some additional language may make things much riskier, like adding a hashtag #RememberInNovember or some other implicit or explicit link to the election.
