Heath Brown is an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the John Jay College in New York. Heath has been researching the Tea Party movement, and it’s origins in the Citizens United supreme court decision. The origins of this important decision – and the continuing impacts on elections and policy – have their roots in nonprofit sector.
Heath joins host Steve Boland to talk about his new book, The Tea Party Divided, how all kinds of nonprofit organizations can engage in policy advocacy, how certain types of nonprofits can engage in political work like supporting or opposing specific candidates, and how transparency in all these organizations can help all nonprofits as a whole.
