“Advocacy is one of the most important tools to change the society and give people their rights”

Ideas for justice, that are  considered an impossible challenge, can happen, thanks to advocacy. Many important changes in the past happened due to advocacy movements – among them was the abolition of slavery in the 18th century in the United States of America, or the suffragette movement on women’s rights in the United Kingdom at the beginning of the 20th century. Advocacy goals can be achieved through a combination of different approaches, including working closely with decision makers, lobbying, or raising public awareness of an issue.
