Abstract "Have you ever witnessed or experienced something and thought, "This isn't right! Someone needs to do something about it!"? This is exactly how advocacy begins. Even if you've never considered yourself an advocate, advocacy is for everyone. If you have ever signed a petition to show your support for a cause, or spoken out about something you felt people should better understand- that's advocacy! Advocacy can take many forms-from voting in an election, to raising awareness, to organizing a campaign for change-or leading an entire movement. It happens at multiple levels, from local to global. It's democracy in action"-- Provided by publisher.
