The ability to speak freely and to be direct about what needs to be heard. “Advocacy is a gift and some aren’t able to really comprehend just how “effective advocacy” really is.” by: Tanikka Paulk What is the true meaning of advocacy? Standing up, finding solutions, fighting the injustices. There are so many injustices which need attention there needs to be solutions. How many are willing to cooperate with the advocates and others? There seems to be communications issues and there are so many refusing to accept what is so. i’m an advocate and I’ve fought causes. Yes I’m more than an advocate because I’ve voiced my concerns I’ve rallied so therefore my advocacy includes activism. That’s right. My name is Tanikka Paulk and although there are so many continuing to cause difficulties there is no way that I’m going to give in.
Justice is what I’m called and no matter how persons feel about the title there should be justice. There needs to be order the disturbances could cause a country to decline. What does Justice have to say? Justice has already said a lot and there are more issues to speak upon. Community Tool Box states,
- Advocacy is active promotion of a cause or principle
- Advocacy involves actions that lead to a selected goal
- Advocacy is one of many possible strategies, or ways to approach a problem
- Advocacy can be used as part of a community initiative, nested in with other components.
- Advocacy is not direct service
- Advocacy does not necessarily involve confrontation or conflict
I’ve always been interested in helping others and I’ve stood up and right now I’m having to stand up for myself because there are so many refusing to allow my journey to incur the effectiveness in which can help so many. The disruptions seem to be bothersome at times but there are ways to move forward without losing control. The movements continue and yes justice should occur because a country could suffer allowing disorderly People to control the Nation. It certainly takes bravery in order to continue the advocacy path. There aren’t too many displaying that they’ve obtained the tools “to become” effective advocates. Perhaps there are so many uninterested in advocacy.
No matter what the views are one should believe in self and continue to be confident. Yes there will be some unwilling to accept what an advocate has to say but when there is strength and dedication then there will be more accomplished. Speaking “the real” speaking what’s perceived as the truth can certainly generate what can assist “People.” There is greatness here and far there should be more advocates willing to take stands on the important issues. My hand is firm and my eyes have viewed the many injustices which certainly need the attention.
I’ve witnessed some of the injustices and there has been sorrow because of what continues to occur. My focus is on the path at hand what others have to say about what I’m doing isn’t to worry. I’ve used my own thoughts and the ones trying to cause disruptions should really sit down and move out of the way. Meaning they should mind their own business if they’re unwilling to help. There’s a lot of chatter but what actions have they supplied? Movements are what so many are trying to look for. It may appear as if the entire world is against but there will be the “supporters.” “The challenges haven’t caused my advocacy to decline and I’m continuing to be the fighter I am.” By: Tanikka Paulk
“Advocacy is so important and shouldn’t there be solutions to the injustices. Shouldn’t there be the solutions?” (Tanikka Paulk)
