Advocacy

Data and Information for Advocacy

High quality advocacy pairs two things: personal stories and data. Personal stories give a face to the issue being discussed, they make it real and they inspire change. Data confirms that those stories are not just singular events, provides a reason to act on a population level, and makes the case for particular intervention.

These are a few resources with important data and information for advocacy efforts. If you have suggestions of additional pieces that others may find useful, please emailĀ info@nnoha.org.
