Advocacy

Advocacy can take many different forms, including research, public education, lobbying, and voter education. It is the main way in which non-profit organizations advance the issues they care about and help bring about lasting change on the behalf of their beneficiaries.  Enhancing capacities in the area of constructive advocacy and engagement can create significant benefits for NGOs and civil society organizations. While organizations will undertake advocacy at differing levels, the resources available will provide guidance regardless of the type and operational level of organizations.
