Advocacy matters. Advocacy can be defined as active support for a cause and most often is directed at changing some official decision or public policy. You likely advocate all the time without even realizing it. When people advocate for important causes like increased school funding, safer neighborhoods, or to help more children to be able to see a doctor, they are participating in an important part of the political process. While advocacy can take many forms, this toolkit focuses on helping to grow grassroot child health advocacy skills in three areas: Decision-Maker Advocacy, Community or Person-to-Person Advocacy, and Media Advocacy.
We hope you will download and use these tools to help inform, inspire and mobilize others in Texas to take action for children's health and wellbeing.
