Advocacy & Legal Issues
Advocacy means supporting an individual or a group in getting what they need. Sometimes advocacy involves providing support or resources so a person can better assert their rights, think things through, decide on a course of action, or otherwise solve the problem. Sometimes advocacy involves working on behalf of an individual or a group to defend their rights, negotiate a solution to a particular problem, or try to change the way a system works.
