Always start by clarifying your advocacy plans for yourself: What are you asking for? What costs are involved? What would be provided as a result? What benefits will result? We encourage you to carefully analyze the political, budgetary, and cultural climate in your community as you choose your advocacy goals to increase the odds for success. Working with your stakeholders will also help in this process. Generating ideas with older adults and including them in the advocacy process will bring more power to your message. Potential advocacy goals are listed in the Menu of Advocacy Options and outlined in Step 3 below.
