You work to make sure your organization's mission and constituents are served to the best of your ability. Whether your mission focuses on mental health, animal rights, basic needs, the arts, or a myriad of other social causes, advocacy is a way to stand for your mission and take action to affect decisions that impact your organization and most importantly the people and communities you serve.
One of the biggest mistakes nonprofit leaders sometimes make is deciding not to engage in advocacy because they believe they're prohibited by law from doing so. This is simply not true.
