Becoming an Advocate

 

An advocate is a person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, cause, etc. (from www.dictionary.com). Concrete Change is asking you to become an advocate for our movement. Your help is needed to make change. The success and progress of our grassroots movement depends on small and large actions taken by individuals like you, alone or in small groups.

Where do you start? Here are some ideas . . .

Educate yourself. Read through our Web site. Order and study our PowerPoint presentations and videos. Google “Visitability”. Become comfortable with correcting the myths and objections to taking action.

Educate others. Share your information with friends. Show our PowerPoint presentations and videos at small group meetings. Write letters to the newspaper editor. Write articles for your neighborhood paper or periodicals.

Call for action. Write or call your political leaders, local and federal. Contact builders and planners in your area.

Grow the movement. Join a small group advocating for change. Start your own group and mobilize them to enact change in your community.
