Abstract

"This book contains ten action tools that comprise best practices that will help the user develop understanding and specific skills in the area of advocacy. The actions tools have been designed for development of specific skills that are needed in implementing the different forms of advocacy. It gives basic explanations of the most common activities, what to do and what not to do, in implementing the activity, tips, examples and samples of the activity where appropriate. Each tool can be used for trainings and reference but the facilitator can select for practice a few of the most commonly used forms (such as face-to-face meetings and writing a press release) and others we have already come to see as necessary to have. The Advocacy Action Tools are on the following subjects:
1. Taking a seat at the table: Working inside the system
2 Affecting legislation and public policies
3. Lobbying or face-to-face meetings
4. Preparing a position paper and briefing notes
5. Writing and delivering a presentation
6. Understanding media advocacy
7. Writing and using a press release
8. Learning how to use media advocacy tools
9. Engaging the media
10. Using the internet for advocacy work"
