What Is Advocacy?

Advocacy is simply the act of educating others about a cause that you believe in. It is the active promotion of a cause or principle, or a policy, system or environment change.

  • Involves specific actions that lead to a selected goal.
  • It is one of many possible strategies or ways to approach a problem
  • It can be used as part of a larger community initiative
  • It does not always involve confrontation or conflict

Anyone can be an advocate!
