We wrote this guide to help you use the skills you already have to change government actions that affect your life. As an individual, you may wonder what you can do to change things. As a grassroots group, you may think that the deck is stacked against you. There are many things that may stand in your way. There are people and organizations that oppose justice. There are elected officials who listen to money instead of their constituents. But this guide, and the companion Guide to Media Advocacy, can help.
