Human rights lawyer and author Jehanne Henry and Associate professor in paediatrics Dr Sara Abdelgalil discuss what is advocacy, why do we do it and what are the main components of an effective advocacy strategy. Jehanne discusses how advocacy is ‘more of an art than a science’ and how you use your research, intuition, arguments and passion to make a real change in this world. There are a number of different types of goals that we can advocate for. Both discuss the elements of advocacy including deciding which issue you would like to advocate, explaining why your issue is important and understanding the short-term and long-term goals of your advocacy strategy.
