Discussion – Week 7
You have explored a community problem from the perspective of prevention. Now, you will consider this problem through the lens of advocacy. Are there public policies that could change? Are there resources that could be enlisted? As you address the community problem you have chosen to explore for your social change portfolio, consider how advocacy might, for example, raise awareness or resolve issues.
For this Discussion, you will explore advocacy actions as they relate to the targeted community problem you chose.
