"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!"
--  Anthropologist Margaret Meade

On a personal level, advocacy can:

  • Help make you feel empowered.
  • Help turn hopelessness into hopefulness.
  • Help improve your quality of life.

On a more general level, advocacy is about changing existing laws, or enacting new ones, to deal with a subject you care about.

If you are interested in becoming an advocate, check existing organizations to see where there is a fit between your interests and the organization. If there is no such group, consider asking an existing group to take on your cause. If all else fails, consider starting your own group -- even if it is a one-time grass roots e mail campaign to let a congressperson know that many constituents care about your cause.
