34 KEY POINTS IN POLICY ADVOCACY STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

  1. Advocacy can be generally understood as the process of building support for an issue to create change in attitudes, behaviors, policies, systems, or ways of doing things. Many organizations use advocacy to build support for a given issue, intervention, or technology among key audiences and move them to action. Policy advocacy is a specific type of advocacy.

DEFINING ADVOCACY

In the simplest terms, advocacy is the process of speaking out for something, such as a cause or a policy. The English word is actually derived from the Latin term “vocare” (“to call”). So with the prefix “ad” (which means “for” or “towards”), advocacy becomes “calling for”. This definition clearly shows that advocacy is active, not passive.
