Advocacy allows individuals to have their voice heard, primarily in a public space. It is about educating decision makers about the impact of public policy decisions or about individual rights. Older adults and adults with disabilities should feel empowered to advocate for themselves and for others. Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure people have their voices heard on issues that are important to them. Advocacy affords people the opportunity to have their views and wishes considered when decisions are being made about their lives. It can mean many things, but in general it refers to taking action. 

Not everyone knows how to advocate/self advocate or where to start. We are providing some resources that may beneficial in your advocacy journey.
