What is Advocacy?
Advocacy is a term that is used widely, and in many different situations, yet the basic definition is simple: the act or process of supporting a cause. Whether that cause is political, environmental or personal, you can be an advocate by taking a stand. It is something each of us does everyday as a self-advocate, speaking up for our needs or those of our family.
Children’s Hospital of Richmond encourages advocacy in a variety of ways, including letter-writing campaigns or through visits with elected officials. Other avenues for being an advocate include sharing information about children’s health and safety issues such as car seat safety or bike safety.
