Types of Advocacy
There are many types of advocacy including group, individual, peer, professional, family and friend, and systems advocacy.
Some of the most common types of advocacy are community advocacy, legal advocacy, public policy advocacy, and self-advocacy.
Community advocacy's goal is to change the ideas and attitudes of the public. This can be accomplished by using educational strategies and the media to reach the public and promote an issue. Educational strategies can include direct mail, publications, group presentations, TV, radio, editorials, news releases, press conferences, and social media.
