A New Weave of Power, People & Politics: The Action Guide for Advocacy and Citizen Participation, by Lisa VeneKlasen with Valerie Miller

The authors identify this advocacy approach as “an organized political process that involves the coordinated efforts of people to change policies, practices, ideas and values that perpetuate inequality, prejudice and exclusion.”
