Instructions A vital component of macro social work practice is demonstrating a commitment to social justice through advocacy. Advocacy typically occurs within the context of a social organization and is easily accessible through community events. This assignment involves both engaging in advocacy, reflecting on it, and planning future advocacy action. Rather than a social issue as with the community event assignment, this Advocacy event should instead be focused on the affected population. Choose and attend an advocacy-specific event, either in-person, or virtually. After the event, please write a reflection answering the following questions in the following format. This section of the assignment should take approximately two pages of text to cover. What was the event? (title, date, time, place) What was the social issue on which the event was focused? What was the advocacy strategy of the event/organizing group? Do you think the event accomplished its goals? Explain your answer. What was the most valuable learning experience of the advocacy event? Read Community Toolbox’s “Advocating for Change” (Links to an external site.) and use their outline to inspire next steps/generate ideas for advocacy related to the event you attended. This section of the assignment should take two to three pages and follow the format below: How might research be done to better understand the issue? What are the broad goals of the advocacy effort? What are 2-3 specific, shorter-term goals that would help reach the broad goal? What advocacy strategies could be implemented to meet the goals identified? What allies and resources might be used in these advocacy efforts? How will progress be measured?
