Advocacy Tip 1 — Selecting an issue

Criteria for selecting a particular issue might include the following:

  • Will a solution to this problem or issue result in a real improvement in people’s lives?
  • Is this an issue or problem we think we can resolve?
  • Is this an issue or problem which is fairly easily understood?
  • Can we tackle this issue or problem with the resources available to us?
  • Is this an issue that will attract support or divide us?
