Advocacy can be one of the most powerful ways to impact public policy. However, advocacy can seem overwhelming, and there is a lot of confusion about what advocacy is and how to do it. This toolkit is designed to dispel any myths or confusion you may have about advocacy and to provide you with all of the tools that you need to advocate to make preventing and ending homelessness a federal priority. Through advocacy, we can work with policymakers to provide new and increased resources so that no man, woman, or child in the United States experiences homelessness.

The toolkit's introduction covers:

  • What is advocacy?
  • Why does advocacy matter?
  • Why should you do advocacy? and
  • What is in this toolkit?
