In this world full of injustices, everyone just wants to be heard, but not everyone is capable of voicing out their sentiments. Advocates are people who argue for and support a cause or policy to help people. Are you considering becoming an advocate yourself? You don’t have to start from scratch. There are various advocacy groups out there looking for your help.
First up, you should consider which advocacy suits you best and you best connect with. Here are some types of advocacies:
- Self-advocacy – speaking up for yourself or others facing discrimination or harassment.
- Individual advocacy – supporting someone when they need help trying to find a solution to a problem
- Community advocacy – involves a group of people acting together to affect positive change
- Political advocacy – making a difference on a national or international level. This focuses on policies that impact the issue you are advocating for.
