Advocacy is the process by which one speaks in support of a specific interest although its usage has evolved to mean the political process by which one aims to change or influence existing or proposed policies or practices on behalf of or with a specific individual or group. It involves focused efforts to influence public policy and resource allocation decisions, usually on behalf of or with minority or disadvantaged groups in society, in a way that represents their best interests. Lobbying is a type of advocacy that attempts to influence decisions made by the government.  The more noble aims of advocacy are to: ensure underprivileged populations enjoy equal access to information, support and opportunities; promote social inclusion and reduce discrimination; empower disadvantaged groups; protect human rights; and ensure a better quality of life for all.
