Advocacy creates an essential opportunity to elevate community voice and is a vital tool in producing impactful legislation that addresses critical needs. Utilizing effective methods for advocacy ensures that voices of community are reflected in policy. Our representative democracy, as well as meaningful legislation, relies on pivotal voice to elevate solutions for historically disenfranchised communities, ensure protection for rights, and prosper into a better and brighter future.
