A Guide to Resources on Advocacy: Facts, Strategies, and Information.
Webb, Kelli; And Others
This resource guide includes information to help advocates for children be more effective, whether they work at education and research or in direct action with media and legislators. The guide begins with a one-page description of the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI), listing the kinds of youth-related research materials and services it provides. The section titled "Facts" is a three-page listing of various statistics on social problems affecting families, children, and youth in Indiana. The "Strategies" section lists 60 ways to be an advocate; gives advice on how to use mass media; offers pointers on coalition-building; and tells how to work with elected officials and how to find out about federal and state rules for lobbying for nonprofit organizations. The "Information" section lists addresses and phone numbers of statewide child advocacy organizations according to focus (General, Abuse, Diversity, Economics, Education, Employment, Families, Health, Legal and Juvenile Justice, Religion). The section also provides a 22-item bibliography of books on youth advocacy, a list of 7 periodicals, and 1 audiovisual resource about the Indiana State General Assembly. Several excerpts from the books and periodicals are included. The guide ends with an order form for publications sold by IYI, a list of bibliographies available free of charge from IYI, and a feedback survey form for reader reactions on the guide. (ME)
