Advocacy means speaking out on behalf of someone’s rights or best interests, especially if they are disadvantaged.
It is a communication-driven form of change-making, which can be applied to diverse human rights, social justice, legal reform, equity and environmental causes.
Unlike self-advocacy or individual advocacy, systemic advocacy is about wider societal change. How we improve the system to make things better for everyone. It is about long-term, far-reaching change which rewrites the rules.
