At the Democracy Center, for nearly 25 years we have worked to support people all across the world with one area of activism especially – advocacy. That is a word with many different meanings. Most of all it means to have a specific objective in mind – passing a law or blocking one, demanding action from a community or a corporation, become an advocate for some specific vision and working with others to achieve it. Its targets can include Presidents and city councilors, billionaires and CEOs. Advocacy’s tools are diverse as well – research and protest, lobbying and grassroots organizing, media work and coalition building, and a lot more. Its practitioners range from young people taking action for the first time to long-time veterans who sit at the head of formidable organizations.Visit Link
