What is advocacy?
Simply put, advocacy is speaking “up” to help change the status quo by informing and shaping policy. It might mean telling a doctor you disagree with a treatment, telling a teacher you want different help, or telling a lawmaker they need to understand a different perspective. It is a way of approaching life.
