Every Voice Matters: The Importance of Advocacy
Royea, Amber J.; Appl, Dolores J.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v37 n2 p89-91 Oct 2009
Over the years parents, professionals, and politicians have come together to advocate on behalf of children's rights. Advocacy can occur individually, collectively, or a combination of both. Although some advocacy efforts are more successful than others, it is the process of the advocacy and voices behind it that matter most. In this guest editorial, the history of two major advocacy organizations and ideas for becoming an advocate are discussed.
