USE YOUR VOICE

Advocacy is defined as the public's support of a specific viewpoint or cause. This page lists different ways you can advocate, or have your voice heard, to raise awareness of issues (example: lack of tobacco control in your community) and create debate that could influence decision makers. Below are some advocacy tactics your group can use in your movement to improve the community's health:

Media 

This section talks about what media advocacy is, what it involves, and how to use it.  If you love scrolling through your feed, this one might be for you.

Petitions

If you are passionate about a particular cause and want to represent a group of people that support that cause, petitions are a strong way to advocate.

Letter  Writing

Express to an elected official why a particular issue is worth their attention. Have your voice heard through letter writing.
