Identify the focus of your advocacy efforts and give an example of an issue you would like to address as an advocate.

 

Identify one individual or group (local policy maker, state-level legislator, corporate leader, etc.) that you can contact for support of your issue and provide a rationale for choosing this individual/group.

Describe the strategies you would use to gain the support needed for this issue through individual advocacy.

Describe the strategies you would use to attract the support needed for this issue through collective advocacy.

Create two talking points (as discussed in Chapter 13) using one concrete example (refer to key term in chapter reading for precise definition) for each point to demonstrate the importance of the issue.

These talking points should be appropriate to use when talking to legislators or the media about the issue for which you are advocating.
