Advocacy and Membership Organizations

Advocacy organizations provide an outlet for advancing issues and working for positive changes on those issues. They often are membership-based organizations, that coalesce around a single issue or series of related issues, and may carry out advocacy for public policy, social change, information dissemination, or direct client services. Contact the organization directly for more information on their advocacy activities and membership benefits.
