Advocacy, it is the key to success when promoting social justice and inclusion in our lives. We all know the vital role advocacy can play when supporting those from oppressed and underrepresented identities, but HOW one advocates is often a question left unanswered. Daniel Auber and Tish Lyne have collaborated to produce strategies to aide student faculty and staff members to become successful advocates. Through this session attendees will understand strategies for informal advocacy, as well as advocating peer to peer. It is our goal by the end of this session attendees will feel more confident to answer the question “How can I be an advocate?.”
