Do Advocacy Differently

Do Advocacy Differently

 

Like other sectors, the advocacy sector is changing rapidly.

 

Many organizations are stuck doing advocacy the old way, when there is a new reality.

These days, campaigns that put people at the center of their advocacy campaigns WIN.
Organizations need to leave behind centering:

  • Lobbyists

  • The old way of doing things

  • The good old boys club

  • Egos

Many people scoff (or can't imagine) doing advocacy differently - with putting people at the center of their campaigns.

How many times have you heard?

  • Our advocacy staff needs to be based in DC

  • Our lobbyist runs our advocacy program

  • We play the inside game in DC, we don’t need a grassroots strategy

Vu Lee, the world-renowned nonprofit disrupter and brainchild of NonprofitAF, challenges us to rethink our systems and structures, yet for some reason, we have exempted our public policy programs.

 

If you are interested in helping create a people-centered advocacy sector, you are invited to join the Do Advocacy Differently Slack channel.
