Speaking out about issues is important, yet substantial actions can be brought about by speaking to the right quarters. As an advocacy group we believe in bridging the gap between rights advocates, policy makers, legislators, media and the average citizen.
The importance of Advocacy cannot be undermined. Very often most people are unaware of the issues that affect or are likely to affect each and every one of us. Our jobs as advocates is to highlight these issues in the simplest terms and in the most creative ways using every possible medium. This will result in creating an awareness of societal problems and the solutions that can be found. Mindsets will start to change and people will begin to take ownership of areas where they can make a difference. Sometimes it is only a question of spreading the word.
As awareness increases, we will find others joining the cause and adding their voices to ours. This collective strength will result in the right focus being put on areas that require attention.
