the roles of advocates and consultants in social change


The Alliance for Justice defines advocacy as “. . .any action that speaks in favor of, recommends, argues for a cause, supports or defends, or pleads on behalf of others” (p. 1). Advocates may educate the community, policymakers, populations, and even politicians about a social problem. Consultants provide expert advice and are often hired for a fee to provide strategic guidance, financial recommendations, methods to capture data and metrics, and many other activities.

You will consider the roles of advocates and consultants in the community needs assessment plan that you are working on for your Final Project.
