2018 Midterms: Election Engagement Across the Network
November 9, 2018

With another midterm election in the books, PIE Network members are reflecting and planning for the year ahead. This year, many members actively participated in election season, ranging from making formal endorsements and launching referendum campaigns, to creating election guides and distributing candidate questionnaires. (Under the federal tax code, 501(c)(3) organizations are restricted in how they can engage in the political process.) Below is a snapshot of recent member activity.
